Arabella Adams : it amazing how much the tiger trusts them

Janette Oliva : The baby Tiger is soo cute 😍

Rain RedFox : 01:56 mini roar :3

chloe jagger : These tigers are endangered. They’ve got to do anything they can to make sure they reach adulthood.

PinayBeautyAndStyle : guys the cubs are for the breeding program and for the conservation/awareness program. They aren't meant to be placed back in the wild so hand raising them is fine. Hopefully in the future there will be stronger protection laws and there will be enough surplus tiger population for programs like this to release them back in the wild. Until then, they're better off being taken cared of by human experts.

L.V.C : Love all the "vets" and " tiger experts" in the comments. Rewatch the video. They can't risk having the Cubs die, it was a difficult choice plus tigers are endangered they can't have risks.

jonny boy : This video is proof that every king was once an unguarded baby

Lady A : Not understanding all the people championing the "natural" route. Yes, it is more natural to leave the cubs with the mother. But just because it's natural doesn't always mean it's good. Nature is not a nurturing, gentle thing whatsoever. It's a cruel, cutthroat existence that focuses completely on the survival of the fittest idea. What if these sweet babies were deemed "unfit" by nature and then killed? Death is "natural", too, but I don't see anyone saying the cubs should die because it's natural. The fact is, these humans are stepping in and offering a gentler alternative to the harsh reality of nature. As the more intelligent species, it's our responsibility to nurture and protect what nature would not. Nature is beautiful, wonderful, and deserving of the utmost respect. But the uglier sides of nature must also not be forgotten. The tigress is a great mother, but she wouldn't be able to make her babies better if they got sick. She just wouldn't know how. That's not her fault; it's just what she is. Tigers don't understand germs, viruses, illness, or anything like that. But humans do understand those things. These cubs are guaranteed to live now instead of leaving it up to chance. I'd take 100% survival rate over 50% any day. The difference between humans and nature is love. Nature does not love these cubs. Nature is putting them on an obstacle course and saying, "If you fail, you die." These humans, meanwhile, are saying, "Come be happy, warm, and fed without having to be afraid. Here's a snuggly pillow, too." Not all humans use their intelligence for good, and it's horrible, but these humans here are. We as humans have the ability to choose what we do, bad or good. Nature does not choose. It just is.

Dutch and epic : Youtube = cat videos Bbc youtube = tiger videos, cat videos deluxe

Haniza Comey : 1:56 sound like he's crying..like human babies...so cute

Maddie King : 1:51 Tiger: screams “See what I mean about being fiesty?”

Classy Wrestler : Baby tigers are so cuttttteeeee .......

Elliot Bear : Everyone here saying taking the cubs away is cruelty are being ridiculous and aren’t thinking past emotional bonds. Hand raising cubs allows them to be monitored through their every day, vital to keep them alive. Mama tiger won’t spend every moment with the cubs, and has to go back to the main enclosure eventually, which puts the cubs at risk from the other tigers. Also, hand rearing cubs puts them at a lower risk of illness that could be transmitted by older tigers, illness that a cub’s immunity can’t fight off. It looks mean, but it’s truly for the better of the cubs to be hand raised.

Adam : *puts tiger cub in Tupperware* Okay, ready to take home

Alice Willoughby : These little guys are super adorable! It's so sad that tigers are so endangered!

Ch1l1C0nCarnag3 : All these people complaining about the cubs being hand raised clearly didn't listen to the fact that they will be vulnerable to illness, and are likely to die off before reaching adulthood. So having them be hand raised is a way to safeguard the cubs and make sure that any signs of illness could be picked up immediately. It's not about keeping them as "natural" as possible. They aren't wild tigers. They aren't being raised to be put back in the wild. They are being raised to help raise awareness for tiger conservation. That means being more calm and friendly around humans is much better, as it means they can be used for raising awareness.

Marlene Blackwinter : LOL that fiesty Stripe!! I adore them both, but Stripe's yowl was just so freaking CUTE! :) <3 <3
