Why in the world would the Federation *want* Tribbles on its starbases? That is a blatant contradiction of canon. Also, what is the ETA on the foundry editor coming back up?
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
