Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “South Africans call for more wildlife protections” – below is their description.
Two “pet” tigers living next door to a childcare centre in Johannesburg sparked fear and anger among many people in the neighbourhood.
It has also renewed discussion about the ethical treatment of wildlife.
Now the government is drafting a new law to ban the domestication and exploitation of indigenous lions, but animal rights groups say all exotic animals should be protected.
Al Jazeera’s Natasha Ghoneim reports from Johannesburg, South Africa.
