In certain parts of the world, the breeding of ligers is banned. Recently in 2010, take an example of Taiwan, a man has been charged with 1500 US dollars (in some reports 5000) for breeding ligers. They authorities belived that since tigers are endangered species, therefore, it was not necessary to go for a cross-breeding programs. However, our statistics show that the captive ligers have never been endangered in the world but rather they are more. However, unlike Taiwan, in United States one can do anything it wants to breed the ligers. Liger breeding is not legal in all the States of America but it is legal in majority of the states.
