Up close and personal pictures show how this powerful 600lb female tiger's fierce jowls rippled as she dived into the water for the hunks of raw meat her keepers tossed into the water-tank.

Noted, these animals are having hard enough times surviving please, do not call them Demonic looking. There are sick people in this world that believe in such stupidity. The Tiger looks like it is hungry and enjoy some food and it looks gorgeous by the way!

Great photos, nothing demonic however. The tiger is simply saying that the fur is getting a wee bit wet and all that swimming to get a snack. Grrrooooowwwwwwl!

My personal friend and trainer Lee Munroe, at Six Flags taught Kashmir to do this since she was a cub. Odin also was taught this same behavior. It's not a matter of just tossing meat in and they go for it, he spent endless time teaching this extraordinary unusual behavior, and he had to teach them ultimate trust in him to get them to do something they normally wouldn't. He hails from Australia and worked at Steve Irwin's zoo before coming to to Vallejo and becoming the top trainer of all the animals there, except the birds. He even took them home and slept with them when they were tiny cubs.

Anyway, my niece worked there for 7 years and tells a different story about the behind the scenes treatment of animals at the Vallejo Six Flags from the stories we usually read about.

I have pledged not to attend anymore such parks, zoos, and exhibitions, which is kind of sad...because people come away from the park loving the animals and having a new-found respect for them. This former Marine Land is where I developed the remainder of my attachment and love for big cats, dolphins, and many other animals.

There's a rock and a hard place issue for me on this.

But the photos are truly spectacular and thanks for sharing them Cher.
