Floyd Mayweather – Tiger

Described by a few people as absurd, Floyd Mayweather is a proud owner of a few tigers. He sparked up some controversy in 2015 after he was taped pulling the smaller of his tigers in a hotel lobby. Despite the leash around the tiger’s neck, the video showed the tiger controlling the boxer.

To add to his already impressive streak of Tigers, Mayweather received a rare albino tiger as a gift for his 40th birthday. While owning an exotic pet is illegal in 42 states, it is totally legal in North Carolina, Alabama, Delaware, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, West Virginia, or Wisconsin.

According to Big Cat Rescue, big cat attacks have left 17 adults and 5 children dead since 1991 and injured 261 more.
