  • A girl in Sinaloa, Mexico, appeared on a video walking her pet tiger
  • The child claimed in the viral video that the Bengal is one of two her family owns
  • The Bengal tiger is listed as ‘an exotic species’ by Mexico’s Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection

This is the moment a young girl showed off her pet tiger and bragged about having a smaller one inside her home in Mexico.

A video recorded by a friend of the girl’s father shows the child holding on to the Bengal by a leash as she walked it down a dirt road in the Sinaloa municipality of Guasave.

The girl started walking back with the wild feline before the man pulled up in front of her house and asked the whereabouts of her dad, subsequently quipping,’let me see that damn dog?’

According to the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection, ‘the Bengal tiger [Panthera tigris] is an exotic species listed in Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wildlife and Fauna.’  

In May, authorities in the western state of Jalisco seized two Bengals from a home, including one that was recorded roaming down a street before it was caught by a man swirling a lasso.

The Bengal tigers were housed inside an enclosed area within a farm, but the owner did not have the proper permit to house them.
