I'm glad he's okay and that the tiger is going to be saved from any harm. IMHO, it was one heck of a stupid risk to take!

Just saw on the morning news. Maybe some rules were not followed properly. Just glad the keeper is OK and the tiger too.

Good, I'm glad the man will be okay, but one can not blame a tiger for attacking when his space is being infringed by a human.

This is good news. No punishment for the tiger and the zoo keeper is on the mend. Thanks for this update.

This was not the fault of the tiger.
Tigers don't belong in zoos

I fully agree with Kye J. When a wild animal attacks, it should not be killed. It's not their fault.

We're not talking about clining out a cat cage...if neglience was involved (and it appears there was), this man learned a lesson the hard way.

I am very happy for this man and for his family that must have been very shaken up with this happening. I wonder why that the Tiger we not still in the night time pen, when this fellow went in to clean it. From the article, I gather that this beautiful tiger will not be put down, which is great as the tiger is not responsible.
Thank You Cher. Noted.

Tiger is doing what comes naturally. It is up to the Zoo authority to make sure there is no danger to humans.....and cleaners must also take the necessary safety precautions. Long live the tiger, thanks Cher.
