Michael Jackson’s Tiger ‘Thriller’ Has Passed Away

One of Michael Jackson‘s many idiosyncrasies was his love for exotic animals. And since the late music legend was sort of the rich madman type, he kept a menagerie of giraffes, flamingos, orangutans, elephants and tigers on his notorious Neverland Ranch.

Sadly, one of the tigers — who Jackson had named ‘Thriller’ after his seminal 1982 album — has passed away.
