Here is the real story on that. It's not a California zoo, it's in Thailand.


Part of the article states:

Although these pictures might appear charming and innocent, the AWI noted back in 2004 that there may be a darker side to the Sriracha Tiger Zoo, as press reports stated that Sriracha was under investigation for illegally breeding protected wildlife for commercial export and had been implicated in the sale of a hundred tigers to China (where there is strong demand for tiger body parts for use in traditional Chinese medicines). The AWI also noted that in late 2004 the zoo was closed for a month when between 80 and 100 tigers died or were euthanized due to an avian influenza (probably spread via the raw chicken carcasses fed to the tigers) that swept through the facility.

Thanks for the snopes link, Natalie. I have to say, those pictures made me wonder, cute though it first looks. I can't imagine a Western zoo attempting that. It's sad what these zoos can get away with in other parts of the world.
