The presumption that the selfie craze is over is wrong. By trying to get the perfect selfie with completely unsuspecting tigers many New Yorkers have enraged the lawmakers in the city.
People all around New York, mainly those who fancy dating websites like OKCupid and Tinder, have taken up the task of hunting down tigers at zoos or traveling circuses in order to take a self-portrait with the wild animals. According to the lawmakers, they see the tiger selfies as acts of bravery and tenderness, which are allegedly qualities almost any person is looking for on the dating websites. Officials from the Manhattan authorities, however, think about the threat these selfies might pose to the wild cats. In order to reduce the number of tiger injuries and escapes and to secure the safety of the tigers the New York authorities are currently trying to pass a ban against tiger selfies.
If the ban gets legislated, the fine for those lawbreakers who are willing to snap a selfie with a wild cat could be $500.
