Today is International Tiger Day, and to celebrate, PETA would like to stop people from sitting on/high-fiving/cuddling/bottle feeding/trolling/chilling with tigers for their Tinder profiles. Tigers everywhere are pleased.

In their letter to Tinder co-founder and chairman Sean Rad, PETA writes:

What might, at first swipe, look like a harmless picture actually means that someone was caged, dominated, and tied down or drugged before their photo was taken and uploaded online.


As proof, PETA has posted a video of tourists manhandling miserable looking baby tigers for photos. It calls on Tinder to “help protect pussies [author note: come on] by banning the most selfish selfie of all.”

They refer Mr. Rad to Tinder Guys With Tigers:


Not to bash men, women also pose obnoxiously with tigers.
