I have heard that it is also not advisable to tug on Superman's cape or spit into the wind. I'll leave the whole "pulling the mask off of the Lone Ranger" thing to your discretion.

To me. the Bengal Tiger is the most beautiful animal in the world. My wife and visited Henry almost every weekend at Lincoln Park Zoo when we were engaged. He was the size of the one that just killed. Zoo animals do not have the proper surroundings and things happen. Imagine being kept inside an area about the size of a half a city block and your cousin has three or four thousand miles. Not too comforting, is it ??

No, Bill it isn't, but it's not easy to be a tiger in the wild either; tigers can kill people in their native habitats or attack cattle and are killed. Other cultures place great faith in parts of the tiger's body being able to cure human ailments - more tigers killed. A tiger pelt is still a valuable commodity on the black market.

What I don't understand is any state in this country allowing tigers to be kept as pets, leaving privately funded reserves to care for and maintain tigers that are no longer wanted by the idiots who thought it was a good idea to have one. Why this is allowed is incomprehensible to me, and the lack of common sense in some humans is something I will never understand.

You ask anyone that works with cats....a lion is one thing...a tiger is just like holy s%!YT !!!

I like the line by Chris Rock where there was a news story about a tiger "going crazy" and killing someone.

"The tiger didn't go crazy. That tiger went tiger!"

Put yourself in the tiger's position. You are locked up in a relatively small enclosure when you would prefer to be running free in your natural environment. People are constantly watching/gawking/monitoring you. Jerks are taunting you and probably worse. Then you notice, unlike Abu Ghairb, that you confinement does not have a roof. All you have to do is get over the wall. Would you be focused on that wall 24/7? You might try to escape 1000 times, but fail. Still you can see the freedom. All you need is an extra shot of adrenaline to give you the necessary boost. Then you get it. You make it to the outside. You are in the middle of your torturers. What would you do? I doubt buy them an ice cream cone and challenge them to a game of chess is high on the list. Chris Rock was right. The tiger went tiger, and with an attitude pent up for several years. I feel truly sorry it happened. The victims were probably innocent of provoking the attack. But I can also understand why it happened.

Some years ago, we went to a Ren faire where they had a live cat show. They warned everyone ahead of time not to sneak around the edges of the stage or in the woods surrounding the stage, as this would be very tempting to a large cat! They had the most spectacular liger and they were showing how huge he was by having him suck a baby bottle mounted on a basketball hoop. All of a sudden, the cat got distracted and they hustled him RIGHT off of the stage. The "lion wench," who was wearing the sort of cat suit that you're pretty sure they didn't wear a whole lot of in the renaissance times with the stonings and burnings and all of that, must have still had her mike live backstage and all of a sudden, the audience was treated to, "There was a whole bunch of F-in' Assh*les climbing in the trees by the stage!!" She returned to the stage in absolute silence ...

I personally hate exotic or wild animals that are kept as pets. It is sickening to see what is done to them to get them shipped to the U.S. or other countries. I refuse to buy a bird, a lizard, a snake, a fish, or any other thing that shouldn't be in a cage or tank. I saw a documentary years ago on the conditions under which these animals are captured and shipped and vowed right then and there that I would never support it in any way.

Easy, I raise baby veals. They are delicious. Take up no space at all.

Remember the tiger in The Prince of Tides (the book, not the movie). That tiger rocked!
