A typical day in the life of the Borges family in southern Brazil means bottle feeding Dan, a 700-pound Bengal tiger.
Ary Borges, who owns nine tigers and lives with them at his home in the city of Maringa, is fighting a legal battle with wildlife officials that want to take the animals away.
Borges created a makeshift animal sanctuary in his home to care for the animals.
While Borges does have a license to raise the animals, Brazilian wildlife officials say he illegally bred the tigers, creating a public danger.
Borges says he rescued two abused tigers in 2005 from a traveling circus.
He defends his right to breed the animals and argues he gives them a better home than they might find elsewhere in Brazil.
