I was discussing the matter of international wildlife shipping with a friend of mine, and she said, "Shipping is less complicated then you might think...then again, I'm biased, given that I do it all day long. The trick is to get the tiger into the box to begin with...after that you're all set. If you survive."

Now, my own current problems with UPS aside, I didn't think that it would be all that tricky. After a brief experiment, it appears as though I was right.

Step 1: Research 1

I gathered my reference materials
Love it
I like the shrink ray idea that someone posted. I think that a lot of <a href="http://www.shipmts.com" rel="nofollow">ontario trucking companies</a> would consider doing the same for you. Maybe without the shrink ray but just transportation.
Best. Instructable. Ever.
I'm glad to see I'm not the only one interested in using some <a href="http://www.shipmts.com" rel="nofollow">shipping in ontario</a> to send a tiger.
This is hilarious! I've done a lot of <a href="http://www.shipmts.com" rel="nofollow">shipping to Ontario</a> (and to Canada in general), but I've never tried this before.
Without a proper postal code the tiger could be held up in customs for weeks possibly endangering the lives of many customs personnel. A better address would have been:<br><br>From USA<br><br>To Quebec, Canada<br>(only French Canadians have the imagination necessary for keeping tigers)<br>90210<br><br>Warning: Tiger Inside!
Then shouldn't that warning be in French also?
Oui, en fran&ccedil;ais aussi!
It should be: <br><br>De: Etats-Unis<br>Pour: Quebec, Canada<br>90210<br>Avertissment: a l'interreur Tiger!<br><br>It would be much better.
Above is what Google Translate said.
good point.
Ca va etre: <br><br><br>&quot;Avertissement:<br>Tigre entre ca!&quot;<br><br>Or something; my French is quite limited.
i found this very informative, now i know what to do if i ever have to ship a tiger to canada i also understand that this was just a test run with a smaller and less dangerous tiger
GASP!! you didn't leave holes so the tiger could breathe! i hope that tiger survived, you big mean animal-hating person you!
A dead tiger is easier to cook
shut up.
dude: relax. look at the comments where he traps it.
You can turn this into a great children's book.
YEAH!!! <br>how to send a tiger to Canada: <br>kiddy version!!
yes, they will.
it looks like theres a tiger under that towel....hehe
no, that's a piggy disguised as a chimney. <br>you WRONG!!!
ummm, excuse me but how do you send a tiger to Guatemala? I would like to send one to my grandmother. She is very mean. >:)
U follow dirrecttions, then put ur grandma's adress on the box.
Interesting. I'm pondering this problem right now. There may be a new instructable in a few weeks. :)
yes! Right in time for her birthday... :)
What if you shipped schrodingers tiger? (my spelling is bad I know)
lol u mean schrodingers cat
Yeah. It was late and my autocorrect was playing up. I couldn't be bothered to google it.
This is a purr-fectly humorous instructable of a different stripe!! And I'm not lion!
Luckily, he packed it well, otherwise it could have been a cat-astrophy.
I know for a fact that tigers should be stuffed, so if you leave your fridge open for a while you'll have a stuffed tiger just sitting there, unable to move, ready for the shipping.
One word:<br>Win!
does this count? http://tinyurl.com/tiger-in-a-box
Wonderful! Asolutely wonderful! Have you thought about copyrighting and publishing? :p
Im having a bit of a problem getting the tiger into the box.
Is the box sufficiently large? Also, as has been pointed out in the comments, the box should really have holes in it. I have found that it tends to be safer for the tiger to add the holes prior to ensconcing the tiger within the box.
Well, no. Its quite a small box. Would it help if i cut the tiger into smaller peices and ship it in separate boxes? I've been told that would also cut down on the price of postage. I really want this tiger gone. Its ruining all my nice things. ):
Consider using a shrink ray: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Mad_Scientist_Shrink_Ray/">http://www.instructables.com/id/Mad_Scientist_Shrink_Ray/</a><br/>
Excelent Instructable I say! However I do have a question unrelated to tigers that I'm hoping your willing to help me answer? That question being, what would happen to the size of the comment box if you replied to many times to a single comment? Because when you reply to a comment the box of the reply is smaller than the last. So would the boxes eventually dissapear?<br>
no after a while the comment boxes get bigger depending on how many time people respond to the last comment
This fits nicely with Schroedinger's paradox:<br/>A cat in a box my be alive or dead, but you don't know until you go look.<br/>I'd like to propose a third option: Damn Angry.<br/><hr/>On a different note, did you catch the tiger by the toe...?<br/>
I thought about doing a followup on how to catch a tiger than involved me grabbing his toe, but I thought it might be too derivative.
No, you should do it. It's integral to the story!
