MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - Neighbors are growling about a plan to bring tigers to an area near Malibu.
Two sisters are seeking Ventura County planning permission to build a fenced facility to house up to five tigers in unincorporated Deer Creek Canyon. So far, no decision has been made.
The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1bfObx3 ) says the sisters currently own two white Bengal tigers that have appeared in many ads, TV shows and even a video by rapper 50 Cent.
The area is zoned to allow the keeping of wild animals.
However, the Times say neighbors are worried that a tiger could get out and devour their livestock, pets, or them. In recent weeks they've brought in lawyers, organized a protest and even started a Facebook page called No Tigers in Malibu.
