New York Bill Would Ban Selfies With Tigers

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. Lawmakers in New York State have passed a bill banning selfies with tigers. Apparently dating apps like Tinder and OkCupid are filled with pictures of single men showing off their adventurous, yet tender, sides by cuddling with the big cats.
