News articles surfaced last night noting that Literary Agent Jillian Manus paid $47,000 for the naming rights and chose to name the Cub after herself. So, we now have a Sumatran Tiger Cub named Jillian.
I know most reading this will say, she paid 47k she can do what she wants, and yes that is true. Money does buy that kind of an attitude. Opinions on the other hand are free.
In my opinion, this is pretty pompous and self-indulgent. High bidders should take this honor to choose a name that has meaning for the particular Animal. I wonder if she has also named all her children and pets after herself?
