LETTER: Live tiger at football games idea should be caged

Tuesday, February 2, 2010 | 11:28 a.m. CST

I have heard a lot of foolish ideas in my time, but acquiring a live tiger to display at MU football games is one of the most foolish. There are moral and ethical arguments against this, not to mention the financial, legal and economic realities.

With all of the things that are going on in the world and all of the challenges that today's college students face, I would think that acquiring a live tiger to display for six home football games a year would be about the last concern or item on the priority list. Please tell me that this has been a bad joke.
