Are those (slingshots & etc.) facts or just speculations?
I'd still balme the zoo & the city.

From what they said in the clip it's still just speculation.


If they taunted the tiger, they deserved it.

Agreed.. they should bring it up to spec, but I'd had to see those fools get any kind of settlement if they did in fact taunt the tiger. They don't deserve it.

If I were the kids, taunting or not I would also sue the zoo. Tigers aren't supposed to be able to jump out of cages and eat you. Period. It's just sad that the poor thing gets taken out of it's natural environment, then locked up where people stare at it(and obviously taunt) all day 365 days a year and when it finally gets out it is killed for *protecting itself*. Is it the tigers fault for having instincts, or ours for ignoring them and the dangers they pose as we lock them up as spectacles?

I don't know, but I've seen one of the tiger at the Houston zoo try to get out. He/she would swim to the wall at the end of the moat and sink a bit, then lunge out of the water. Another 12" and it'd have been able to grab the top and pull itself out. I was a bit freaked about becoming lunch, so I left.

While I agree that the tiger is the ultimate victim in this case, it still makes me wonder...
What if it were some kids from a school fieldtrip who provoked the tiger and got killed?
Or if the tiger killed other bystanders instead of those retards?

The tiger should've never been able to hop over the wall no matter what.
The zoo is still guilty as charged imo.
