I was worried that the image I uploaded yesterday communicated hybridism, which whilst an issue in the captive tiger populations, isn't what I want to focus on. I want to focus on the damage that breeding white tigers does to the captive genepool and in turn minimizes the chance of these animals being reintroduced to the wild when they are all gone. And it won't be long before they are all gone. Believe me. Numerous zoos promote the breeding of white tigers for conservation, which is a blatent lie since these animals do not exist in the wild as a species. It would be like breeding pugs for conservation purposes. White tigers attract visitors and bring in money. Awareness will hopefully raise interest in the real orange cats and decrease interest in the sevearly inbred white variation, so that zoos will stop breeding them. Who the hell thinks white tigers look cooler anyway? Soon there will be no wild tigers and no suitable tigers in captivity to replace them with.
