Even though he's named after one, Tyga SUCKS at keeping a tiger!
In case you missed it, in 2014, the rapper almost faced criminal charges for possessing an exotic animal. Ultimately, no charges were filed, and the animal was sent to a shelter.

Does the Rack City artist still care for the feline?! It turns out…
According to Lions, Tigers & Bears — a non-profit rescue facility — the cat (now known as Maverick) is completely taken care of WITHOUT any help from Kylie Jenner's boyfriend!
Founder and director Bobbi Brink says feeding Maverick costs more than $10K a year. This isn't even including vet costs and flea control. Without Tyga's help, the cat must depend on public donations to survive.

There's no doubt Justin Bieber loves to show off hanging out with exotic animals on Instagram — a hobby that has landed him in some pretty hot water!
You may recall back in April when the singer posed alongside a chained Bengal tiger at his father's engagement party (above), and then again in a picture posted a month later with a lion cub — and these are just two of the times in Toronto alone.
Well turns out the 22-year-old received a formal complaint from Toronto Animal Services back at the beginning of June stating that both of these instances violated a municipal code that bans the "keeping" of wild animals such as lions, tigers, and
bears cougars in the city.
