I think they were originally brought to Aust by Afghan traders. Many escaped and they bred in the wild as the desert country suited them.

I believe the QI stat was that more tigers are kept as pets in USA than exist in the wild.

I since read that it is about 6,000 pets vs 4,000 wild. No idea if that is true or not, though.

I guess nobody else knew what the Barbary coast refers to? I'm surprised it's so low.
