Stripped of all dignity, the tiger dies. Angels carry him gently to the animal hospital in the skies. He soon recovers and is happy once more until he sees his fanily and hears their cries.

Sadly noted and signed with this comment ~ This is what happens when you make wild animals perform,keeping them in tiny cages all day long and then abuse them while training them to do unnatural acts for entertainment!!!!!!!!! No wild animal should be held in captivity they are meant to be free and wild. I only have tears for the beautiful tiger who had endured enough suffering and to be beaten to death,heartbreaking,i wonder what the fate of the one will be when he is caught i pray he will never be captured and meet a barbaric death at the hands of selfish greedy humans.Circuses and zoo need to be banned all over the world.R.I.P beautiful tiger.Profit comes before these poor innocent animals welfare and people encourage this by going to watch animals perform.Thank you Cher.Liz Xx

Signed & posted. Tigers and bears and other wild animals belong in the wild; not in circuses for our entertainment. I think in nemesitic fashion we are the authors of our own demise and soon we will experience something that will decimate our species caused by our own stupidity. When you cut down the forests; destroy the coral reefs; reduce the wetlands and bayous; pollute the water, the air and the land what do you expect? It is no longer a question of IF but WHEN?

I cannot wrap my brain around the suffering these precious, magnificent creatures endured in this Mexican horror show. I cannot fathom the intensity of the emotional and physical distress these tigers and all other animals in this so-called "circus" endure on a daily basis. And finally, when one of these horrifically brutalized, tortured beings snaps and retaliates with an attack that was likely long over due, it gets beaten to death by bottom-feeders who have no resemblance to humanity. Hell is on earth; hell is a Mexican circus. I SHUDDER to think of what has happened to the other tiger. Where is the international outrage? Where is the hue and cry? Where are international animal welfare outlets and their power to shut these pieces of filth down? After the bear paw soup yesterday and now this, I won't sleep the rest of the week.

As far as I know both tigers are alive, they were taken by the authorities and put under observation in a zoo, they're underweight and stressed (of course!) but ALIVE! :-) They could be sent to a sanctuary or remain in the zoo, hope it's the first option.
