Following the tragic death at San Francisco zoo where a tiger escaped its enclosure a reporter on CNN raised the question of why this tiger had not been put down last year when it went for a keeper.
FFS! it's a tiger! Tiger's are dangerous and eat people. I think the reporter has been watching too much Finding Nemo.
I am slightly appalled that the zoo were
1) so incompetent the tiger got out and
2) so incompetent that they let the police blast one of the rarest animals on the planet (a female Siberian Tiger) to pieces with shot guns. Where were their people with tranquilliser guns?
The zoo owners should be lined up for a kick in the nuts by all concerned - the bereaved family, wild life conservation groups, city police etc.
