Controversy Over Whether Tigers Should Be Housed In Ventura County Unsettled

Posted on Friday, February 14, 2014 12:35am

A huge controversy over whether a rural Ventura County neighborhood is an appropriate home for a facility to house tigers is still unsettled, despite a big public hearing.

Hundreds of people were on hand at yesterday’s Ventura County Planning Commission hearing to weigh in on the dispute.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco has the story.
