Meet Kenny, An Inbred White Tiger (Photos)

KennyVia Prose Before Hos:

Kenny is a white tiger ‘selectively’ inbred while in captivity in the United States. As zoo’s and exotic pet stores have increased the demand for white tigers, breeders have attempted to recreate the ideal white tiger — large snout, blue eyes, white fur — through relying on a limited pool of captive white tigers.

The result? An astoundingly high rate of deformities and health issues. For example, Kenny is mentally retarded and has significant physical limitations.

    I love this animal…but it makes me sad.

    It is a prime example of what greed can produce.

    The animal pictured is dead now, according to the source article.

    “OMG -they killed Kenny” not so funny now is it?

      That’s because the genes at work are similar or the same as would be in any mammal with the same defects. People forget we are all made of the same material, working on the same blueprints.

    This is extremely sad, no one should be laughing at this. This is the humans faults for wanting something so perfect when it can only be created in the wild. Having these animals in zoo’s is wrong, they are beautiful animals and should be freed.

      while it sucks that there are zoos that have a want for this type of thing, a lot of animals that are kept in Zoo’s are animals either disabled by an injury, or animals that were orphaned/captive raised and wouldn’t stand a chance out in the wild and are given a better chance at life, albeit a simulated one.

    • Dustin Nichols June 1, 2011 at 12:41 am #

      I understand the animal being in the zoo, as they are more and more rare these days, and it’s getting harder and harder to keep them protected. However, that doesn’t mean those at the zoo can’t breed them with another white tiger who has different DNA. Inbreeding is never the answer for any living thing. I feel very bad for Kenny and any other tigers like him. I realize that, because of their rarity, it’s difficult to get normal breeding to happen, but that doesn’t mean it’s completely impossible.

    • jen June 15, 2011 at 3:31 pm #

      white tigers can’t be freed, they’d die in the wild because their white fur doesn’t provide camouflage. that being said, they definitely shouldn’t be inbred so they can look “perfect”.

    Inbreeding ANYTHING is, as a rule, a bad idea.  Look at the messes that are Persian cats bred for flater and flater noses. They now suffer more upper respiratory problems than your average outbred “cat 101″.  The majority of responsble cat breeders and fanciers are wise enough to outbreed.  Kenny is a sad tragedy brought about by the asinine Human habit of believing the illusion that there are “perfect” forms of anything (I’m speaking as an anthropologist, not a mathematician,  Want to split hairs, call a professional hairsplitter).  A solid boot to the gluteals and more accurate information to the people who are “saving” white tigers by breeding them for their “Ideal look” rather than their “species viability” should be imprisoned in a special facility where the punishment is forced courses in genetics, heredity, population viability, increased biodiversity, and the concept “Wabi-sabi”, which roughly translates from the Japanese as “The perfection of imperfection”.

      No, its very common for retarded animals to be born. In the wild, though, parents kill or abandon sickly young- even when we can’t tell they’re sick. Its all about survival for them, no point wasting energy on raising an animal that won’t benefit the genepool. Thats life in the wild.

      You’re making the rather mistaken assumption that this never happens in nature. Humans didn’t invent interspecies sex, nor did they invent retardation. It’s just that animals generally kill offspring that isn’t normal.
