Poor tiger! He was probably startled by that crazy human! 

R.I.P human.

Moral of the story: Don't climb into a Tiger's enclosure.

That guy was a dumbass.

I'm glad to hear that, as here in the UK when a guy was killed by a tiger it was shot. A sad waste of a beautiful animal :(

The fool deserved it. The tiger's not a man killer, just a top predator doing its job ;)

Agreed, but still a sad story. The young man was an Afghan refugee who had lost his whole family due to the long war down there, so the police suspected it was suicide.

Glad you do. He's a gorgeous guy, weighing about 300 kilograms (600 pounds). The Lion next door almost looks like a kitten in comparison :D

This guy is definitely gorgeous. As sad as that story was you had in the provided link, I'm also glad they let him live. What amazes me about cats (whether they're 300 kg or 6, like my own) is that they very often show the same behavior or antics.

Yes, the killer instinct seems to lie deep in all cat spices. It annoys me when my neighbours' cats hunt down the birds in my backyard just for the thrill of killing. Fortunately, they're too fast for the cats in most cases :)

You're right to be annoyed. It's good for the birds. I don't like my own cats go after the wildlife in our backyard, and fortunately they don't do that too often.

Just a natural instinct, still an unfortunate event.

I agree with the news report, it's not their fault and they should not be punished for acting instinctually :nod:
