Across the United States more than 10,000 big cats like tigers, lions and cougars are private owned. In states like Florida, Cougars listed under Class II animals, are allowed as exotic pets, but require a permit.
While many states issue permits, 21 states in the US have banned all dangerous exotic pets, but five states have no laws on keeping dangerous wild animals including North Carolina and South Carolina.
