QUAVO: Animal Lovers Petition
Written by KingCnote on March 25, 2019
An online petition calling on Quavo to “do the right thing and…hand over his ‘pet’ tiger to a reputable sanctuary” has racked up more than 155,000 signatures.
Animal lovers are up in arms over the Migos rapper’s reported acquisition of an exotic white tiger. Earlier this month, he showed off a picture of an enormous jungle cat named Cho, which he referred to as his pet.
In a 2017 GQ interview, he actually mentioned wanting to own exotic animals, telling the interviewer that he was eyeing a white tiger — like the one seen in the “Versace” video — as his next pet.
According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, it is illegal in the state to keep a white tiger as a pet. The creatures are only allowed in facilities operated by zoos and wildlife refuges with exhibition permits and insurance.
