Because under rigidly controlled conditions, you can severely limit the Tribble's explosive breeding. And when not in huge numbers, they are a cute loveable pet, who coo a lot. Spock said it's cooing had a pleasant effect on the human systems... and we try to keep anything pleasant around.
As McCoy said, if they don't eat, they don't breed. We just don't feed them much more than then smallest amounts of grain, if that
Was named Trek17, but still an author.
