Media reports indicate that a Brazilian family has given shelter to seven tigers in their own house.
Ary Borges had rescued two of the tigers from a circus eight years ago and has since multiplied the endangered species in his home in Brazil, the Daily Express reported.
The 43-year old animal lover, who was worried about the plight of endangered tigers, has made a garden sanctuary for the striped man-eaters, who also enjoy a swim with the family in their backyard pool.
He revealed that his daughters feed meat directly into the mouths of the fully-grown cats, who also lounge around the house in the evenings.
Borges hopes to build a park so his beloved pets can roam free and he can educate others of the plight of endangered tigers.
