Well this may
be true that there have been some accidents, there are not lots of them. Even so, most if not all incidents involve the owner and or care takers of the animals and not the general public. When someone from the public is harmed, in these cases, most if not all, are from that person doing somethine very stupid and not obeying any and all warning signs posted. In addition, there are many cases where our beloved domestic dogs injure and kill people. Lets also not forget, how many every day things we do in our lives are much more dangerous, than someone owning big cats. Driving kills many every year. More people are killed in the shower, than have ever been killed or injured by big cats in captivity. So you see, this so called "danger' is just a scare tactic used by the AR to try to force their beliefes on others. Owning big cats is not dangerous, when done so responsibly. You do something stupid, yes, you can get hurt. Same goes with driving. You do something stupid, like drive while talking and texting on your cell phone or worse yet, drive drunk, you can injure or kill yourself and other people as well. Almost everything we do has some inherent danger or risk. When you look at the statistics, you have a much much greater chance of winning the mega millions lottery jackpot, getting struck by lighting or dieing while in the shower, than getting injured by a big cat in capitivty.
