If it's a Tiger reserve why are people going there?
The Tiger is only doing what Tigers do, people should be more careful.
Now the poor thing is cooped up in a zoo!

Very happy that the tiger was not killed after killing 3 people. Only in America :/

I don't much care for the way Shiva is referred to as *it*.

Glad the tiger was not killed. Sad he in a zoo. People should be prevented from entering the reserve.

Sorry to think that he will be locked up. But it is better than them killing him. Thanks Cher

The tiger killed 3 people in the reserve before it was captured. I dont think much of his chances at the zoo. Someone will decide to kill him in retribution, and it will be a Total MYSTERY to all concerned. That tiger is 'toast' in captivity.

so sad, choice is between life and freedom. At least he is safe from poachers, but what a price to pay!

Poor Shiva--she should be going to a reputable cat sanctuary.
