(WICHITA, Kan.) — A popular exhibit at Riverfest is causing some people to protest. White tigers are on display, and some people feel the exhibit is inhumane. A protest will be held Saturday afternoon against it.
"It's just inhumane, I just think it's wrong and they should do something about it," said Valerie Niblack who's organizing the protest.
"All the white tigers in the United States are severely inbred, many of them have severe birth defects, and many of them are actually still born."
Riverfest says the organizers of the exhibit are fully licensed by the Federal government.
"We trust that if they're licensed through the Federal government that they have the proper training and procedures in place that their animals are being taken cared of," says Brett Foltz of the Riverfest.
