He got exactly what was coming to him. In this case a PO'd tiger. I like the Mayor's response - "If you want to pet live animals, go to Butterfield Acres"
The man was later identified as antiquetiger :smiley1:

I have a season's pass to the zoo here, one slow afternoon I started chatting up the Polar Bear keeper about dangerous encounters.
She told me the strangest story were some US tourists who came to the front gate to compliment how amazing the zoo was that they let you interact with the Polar Bears.
When pressed for info it was discovered these people had wondered into a restricted area and climbed up a snow bank and began petting the polar bears.

lol. I saw the story on CNN where the lady was killed by her husbands Pet bear. It seems to be a no brainer to 1) not have a pet bear 2) if you have one try not to go inside the cage or **** it off. I think the bear was shot were the men keeping him should have

Theres a rumor I heard on the radio that these two brainiacs saw a thing on tv about how to survive a tiger attack and DIDNT believe it, so they thought they would test out the method for themselves. Sheer genius! They were right..the method didnt work...and it only cost one guy an arm. Brilliant!
Theres also a rumor the security guard girlfriend may have helped them get in. I'm sure by the 6:00 news the full story will be sorted out.
