They've owned those tigers for decades, and this is the first real "incident" that has occurred.
And personally, I'm a sick bastard. I cherish things like that. My friends were all mad at me the other day because I was joking about it, and they didn't think it was a laughing matter. To me, what about the incident ISNíT funny? It's all such a huge cosmic karma joke.
See, Iím a firm believer in the "reap what you sow" philosophy; I have very little sympathy for people whose actions and decisions invite problems upon themselves.
Furthermore, I have zero tolerance for people who insist on turning Mother Natureís creations into sideshow circus attractions.
I also happen to think tigers are incapable of human domestication, with an instinctual job description that requires the killing of other animals. Consequently, much frailer animals probably shouldnít keep them around.
SO, when a captive tiger attacks and critically wounds its human handler, I donít "feel bad for" that person in the least.
If anything, I feel bad for that tiger... a beautiful, proud animal that has never experienced the essence of its intended being, in favor of an existence comprised of concrete floors, processed meat, and needless human contact. Sadly, that particular tiger is now in jeopardy of being unceremoniously killed, simply because it actually had the GALL to succumb to its predatory instincts and "become a danger" for perhaps intentionally slashing at the jugular.
No shit? Tigers might be a danger to humans? Well, hell. Maybe Roy got mauled because... umm, ITíS A TIGER AND ROY SHOULD HAVE FUCKING KNOWN BETTER.
And WOW. I apologize if someone read that entire rambling mess.
