The 25 Dumbest Athlete Purchases of All Time

10. Mike Tyson's Bengal Tigers

Cost: $140,000 

Mike Tyson is a convicted rapist, threatens to eat children, and once made a grizzly attempt to bite another man's ear off. In sum, he's already the world's most terrifying person, so the last thing he needs is an army of predatory cats. Iron Mike made a fortune disappear in the '80s and '90s with a $400,000 per month burn rate, a $9M divorce settlement, and three Bengal tigers. Yes, THREE Bengal tigers.

Beef costs $3.87 per pound and a single tiger consumes 40 pounds of meat per day. Just feeding a cat that size has a $60,000 annual price tag. But that number is peanuts compared to the civil action lawsuit that'll be filed when one of those deadly hunters mauls a neighbor kid.
