While he loves all big cats and exotic animals. Not only has he showed his love for the animals, but he has adopted many as well. One of Mike’s favorites is the cougar/mountain lion, which he had a story about.

As Tyson was talking about this, he was asked if given the chance; would he get the mountain lions as cubs? Tyson continued: “Right from their mothers. As they get older they don’t like the habitat they possess, so sometimes people give them to me. I’m really good with cats.”
While it was clear that Tyson loves big cats, he has been injured by a big cat, as he added: “I was giving one a tetanus shot and they bit me. It was scared, he was scared. Six, seven stitches and it was over. Then my dog bit me.”
Tyson also revealed that he used to let his tigers sleep in his bed next to him – but that their farts were unbearable as he would tell a story about
He added: “They slept in my bed. The worst thing in the world – farts. As they get older they realize with punishment, they don’t do it anymore. As soon as they hit the pool they s*** and everything, as soon as they hit the water.”
