A circus in China was reported to having tied a sick endangered tiger to a table so people could pay to get their pictures taken riding the tiger. It's amazing how cruel some people can treat animals. What they did to the tiger was bad but there are far worse. What is the worst case of animal cruelty that you have seen and why do you think it happens ? Another recent report of animal cruelty is that a Denver mounted policeman forgot to feed and water his horse and the horse died.
