Akon

My Pet Tigers Poop

... A LOT!

1/6/2014 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

010614_akon_launchAkon's got a serious poop problem in his backyard ... 'cause his pet tigers are dumping like crazy ... and you won't believe how much scat they drop a week.

The "Smack That" singer was on his way into LAX when he told us he owns two tigers -- named Simba and Tony (clever) -- who drop some serious dookies.

Akon says he only cages his tigers at night ... and trusts Tony and Simba enough to let them roam his yard during the day.

That's what Roy said.

Are these cubs or full blown adults? I'm thinking if they are still young and he's complaining now, wait till they start crapping out all that Lion chow at age five.

Just My Opinion    

Well, better to poop your backyard then in some other person's yard, or on the sidewalk. What does he think? The biggest the animal is, the less they $#!^, try telling that to an elephant. LOL

This guy has probably never seen the animal planet shows do***enting deaths due to animal bites, most of which being tiger maulings. He's playing Russian roulette with his life. Only a matter of time. They are wild animals and you cannot read their behavior as much as these animal owners would like to think they can. It takes a second to be caught off guard.

What an effing idiot.....so typical!!! Instead of adopting an endangered tiger - he buys one. Wish idiots like him didn't have money and people that like his music need there heads and EARS examined. I have worked with rescue groups, one time we rescued three baby tigers....guess we will be rescuing these tigers from him when he decides he doesn't want them anymore. Or they will be put down (cruel) when they maul his dumb ass!!! Putting tigers in an unnecessary danger. And btw - his music sucks too!!

No one should be able to "own" a tiger. Let them go.

How sad - wait until they become bigger - this is a multi-faceted tragedy waiting to happen, unfortunately.
I feel horrible for the tigers.

Really bro. One Tiger is already taking it to the maximum level of rediculousness. Leave it to an African nizza to have two tigers.
