Floridian Janice Haley hand feeds her pet tigers in the back yard of her suburban home. Tigers are carnivores and could easily eat her, and or her neighbors, but the 600 pound baby of the bunch can’t go to sleep without sucking on her finger.
Saber is the baby of the pair; a white, 600 pound male Bengal. Haley bought Janda, an orange 400 pound female Bengal in 2002.
Haley decided twenty years ago to quit her administrative assistant job to spend more time outside. Soon after that, she saw an advertisement in her local paper for a tiger training course. She applied, and two years later brought home her first tiger cub, Chuffer. In 2002, she bought Janda to live with Chuffer, until his death in 2007. Shortly afterwards she brought home two week old cub, who is now over 600 pounds.
