If you saw a grizzly bear limping at the side of the road, would you stop and help it?

A family in Brazil would have. They currently count nine 700-pound tigers among its members. It all started when the father, Ary Borges, rescued two who were being abused by a travelling circus in 2005. But now he’s locked in a fierce legal battle with wildlife officials accusing him of illegal breeding resulting in the creation of a public danger.

The Borges family argues the tigers are being treated very well, and say they’re concerned that if taken away, the endangered animals will fall into abusive hands again.

So are they a public danger or just adorable pets? Check out the video above and see for yourself.
