I don't know about that man, I think managing 800 slings would be easier then caring for a single big cat, let alone a liger. I bet they eat crazy amounts of meat and need lots of space to move around.Slings on the other hand would be much easier, time consuming but easierYeah, but when ligers are created, they don't tend to be born in groups of 800-1000, so it's pretty different in terms of how the offspring are managed.
Your right about that, but theoretically if you had bred hybrids and never sold any they would not be mismanaged, as long as they aren't released to the public you could regulate every last one of them, that's what I was insinuating here...Creating them is the problem.
This is all hypothetical of course, as there is little to no chance of it ever happening. The greedy seller who passes off hybrids as a pure species is the main person responsible for all the issues regarding muddied up species. Your right as most who breed plan to sell, so technically not breeding them is the first step to solving the problem.If I had the funds, I would gladly open up a lab and study the effects of hybridization, I'd even create some interesting hybrids for a scientific purpose
