Couple keeps 400-lb Bengal tiger as an uncaged pet
For the record I hope nothing bad happens to these obviously very stupid people. Lets just engage in a little mental exercise for the fun of it though.
I see it going down something like this. This scenario is of course ignoring other scenarios of it either just randomly going crazy or intentionally challenging the man for dominance at some point in the next 1-2 years and winning. Easily winning.
The cat is eating with the dogs. One of the dogs (probably the beagle or the terrier) decides it wants some of what the cat has. The cat does not like this and decides to defend its food. You now have one dead dog. Any other dogs in the immediate vicinity decide they want to avenge the little idiot dog and a fight ensues. The tiger just freaks, its instincts take over, and it goes all Terminator on us. If the couple are extremely lucky they will have 7+ dogs out of the 14 they had when this is done.
Then the guy decides to get into the fray to restore order because he is the man of the house and the alpha male. The woman is freaking out behind him watching her little fur babies getting slaughtered right before her eyes. So Mike the moron gets too near this thing thinking he can control it. The cat who is running just on fear and adrenaline now from all the chaos will at least take a few swipes at him if it does not just outright attack and go for the neck with his jaws. Mike is either dead or bleeding profusely and about to be dead.
The cats instincts then respond to the woman's fear and screaming. Fear means food. The cats meal has been interrupted by several now dead or dieing canines. It goes after barbie doll Jackie. She makes it about 4-5 feet before the cat has her flat on her stomach, pinned to the floor and is doing to her unprotected back what he did to that couch. He may or may not reach down while she is pinned and snap her neck as well with his jaws.
If they are really lucky the dogs will slow the cat down just long enough for the man of the house to get a gun (if he even has one in the home readily available) and shoot the big kitty before it finishes reducing the population of their household pets down to the single digits. Lets hope Mike is smart enough to have something with more stopping power than a 9mm.
God help them if something like this happens and only one of them is home at the time.
I mean seriously, keeping this thing as an indoor house pet is just such a bad idea on every level! This little kitty weighs as much as both of his owners put together and I will bet money that unlike idiot Mike the cats body is bulging with was definitely IS muscle.
Look at this thing on the table in the first picture with the bowl of food and again with the other picture with the dogs near its food. The two guys are in the same room as it but they are very far behind it while it is eating. The look on the cats face is very clear. Anything that gets within striking distance is going to get attacked! And this has nothing to do with the liability of any guest that come over to visit with or without their children. Hell what if these stupid people decide they want children them selves! What happens when the two year old tries to pull himself up by the tigers ears/tail/anything? I do not even want to think about what the very quick result will be.
