Kenya and Storm and a male tiger Boris
Known for being one of the world’s greatest badasses, over-the-top purchases, and his newly found comedy career, Mike Tyson’s 3 Royal Bengal tigers are Internationally famous. You might know one of them best from a starring role in hit film, The Hangover in 2009. Tyson bought the tigers for more than $100,000 and had to spend almost that feeding them for a year. Sadly, it turned out Tyson lacked a proper license for owning the tigers and were therefore sent to a refugee in Colorado to live out their days away from the Hollywood spotlight. While Mike Tyson may not own the tigers any longer, we feel they will always be his, because your pets are for life.
