A tiger cub can be purchased for as low as $1,000. To create the tiger’s new habitat and infrastructure, however, an initial investment of approximately $90,000 may be necessary. An additional $8,000 per year may be necessary for upkeep.
Tigers cannot be house-trained like other domesticated animals. Even if they are spayed or neutered, they will urinate on anything in their territory, including their owners, to mark their territory. The minimum amount of land required to acquire a tiger is typically five acres, which must be encircled by an 8-foot-tall perimeter fence. Tigers consume $200 worth of meat weekly. A veterinarian with experience with large cats is required for the animal’s health. If the tiger must be brought to a veterinarian, a $2,000 cage and a vehicle of sufficient size are required. Additionally, tiger owners require liability insurance, which normally costs around $14,000 annually. As they age, tigers lose all sentiments of affection for their mothers and will murder them if their territory is challenged.
