Kenny is a white tiger that was ‘selectively’ inbred while in captivity in the United States. As zoos and exotic pet stores have increased the demand for white tigers, breeders have attempted to recreate the ideal white tiger — large snout, blue eyes, white fur — by relying on a limited pool of captive white tigers.

The result? An astoundingly high rate of deformities and health issues. In result of this, Kenny was born with physical limitations.
