Wasn't there a recent posting saying this man did not follow proper procedures?

Wild animals belong in the wild (free). We can all help stop the relentless greed-based destruction of their homes by refusing to buy products containing palm a simple start. Their homes disappear due to greed-based demand for cheaper single crop base products. Check the ingredients list of everything you are about to buy and don't buy anything that has the word 'palm' in it. These manufacturers are very devious at disguising reprehensible products to make ever-increasing cheap stuff for western consumers.

It's almost always the humans fault. Unfortunately the animals are the ones that have to loose their lives.

Terrible story, but I'm glad the tiger wasn't killed.

All employees must be cautious and follow safety to the letter, otherwise these incidents continue to happen and injuries and death will continue.
It is good to know that the tiger is not going to be put down.
