03.06.15 — Crosses in a Zoo

Breeding of ligers has been banned in many zoos and animal sanctuaries due to no conservation value of the hybrid, and the risk it poses on the tigress that gives birth to it.   Keeping the two species separate has been standard procedure.  However, ligers do occur by accident in captivity. ~ Wikipedia
