   Mike Tyson regrets keeping tigers as his pets.  He made this known when he was talking with popular artist, Fat Joe. 

  Tyson owns three pet Tigers shows his foolishness and regrets owning them as pets admitting it was “foolish, they’d kill you”. It was said that each white Bengal tigers cost £48,000 each.

  Tyson, as reported by Sky News  told Fat Joe that owning the pet cats was naive because of how dangerous they were when the two discussed the new Netflix documentary ‘Tiger King’, Tyson said on Instagram live:

  I was foolish. There’s no way you can domesticate these cats 100 percent. There’s no way that’s going to happen. They’ll kill you by accident, especially when you’re playing rough with them, you’re punching them back. They get hyped up, hit you back and you’re dead. I’m just happy I educated myself. I was doing the wrong s***. I shouldn’t have had them in my house, believing they were domesticated. I was wrong, The Guardian reports. 

   He added that, "Somebody jumped over my fence where the tiger was and started playing with the tiger. The tiger didn’t know the lady so it was a bad accident. She jumped into the property where the tiger was. They tried to [sue] until they found out she jumped over the fence and she trespassed with the tiger. When I saw what the tiger did to her hand, I had a lot of money back then, so I gave her $250,000 (£200,000) whatever it was because she was just f***** up.

  He made a decision of owning them as pets when he had a conversation with a car dealer in 1992. He decided to buy the pets during his three-year prison sentence, for a 1992 sexual assault conviction. He exchanged some of his cars to get the pets.
