'Tiger Tug' at Busch Gardens, Tampa, FL: image via 970wfla.comWeirder things have been promoted, I guess. But what exactly is the attraction of playing tug of war with a 450 pound Bengal tiger?
Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida is offering the 'Tiger Tug' to any volunteers who want to be challenged by trying to pull a rope out of a tiger's mouth. What this activity does to promote education, appreciation of, or respect for this regal animal, I don't know.
Here are Busch Garden visitors taking the Tiger Tug challenge. They seem to be having fun, but what about the tiger?
Does the tiger tug appeal to you?
