Painful end to a beautiful story: Ary Borges has seven tigers seized from his property in Brazil

After losing a long battle in court, Ary Borges knew it was just a matter of time before authorities showed up at his doorstep to get the tigers he carefully raised surrounded by his children and grandchildren, and time has come. The man that for years kept seven felines on his property has had them taken away from his home/animal sanctuary by Brazilian wildlife enforcement agents. Tears rolling down his face, Ary stood motionless as the huge cats were, one by one, put in single cages barely big enough for their sheer size, and with the truck still in his sight, he went down on his knees, and as if not believing his eyes, shouted, “You’re family! I’ll never give up on you!”
