It's never been clear why so many people on Tinder opt for a picture of them with a captive, drugged animal while on their recent jaunt to a developing country.

There's so any, the Instagram account - @Tinderguyswithtigers - that actively catalogues the volume of dudes who think endorsing animal cruelty is going to get them laid.

But despite being a sexting app associated with loose morals, Tinder have taken an ethical stand and politely asked users to take down the tigers.

"It's time for the tiger selfies to go," the company wrote in a blog post. "More often than not, these photos take advantage of beautiful creatures that have been torn from their natural environment. Wild animals deserve to live in the wild."

Instead they suggested users post pictures of them enjoying nature in other ways such as, "planting a tree, walking to work, volunteering at an animal shelter, conserving water by drinking rosé and enjoying a summer sesame falafel bowl at your favourite vegan eatery."

So when your favourite local café gets invaded with man-bun bros chowing down on sustainable food for their Tinder pic, you know who to blame.
