It's very unfortunate and sad. These poor captive tigers have to take out their frustrations somehow.

It is time to end the captivity of wild animals.

Tigers are wild animals, so what can they expect. First of all tigers are not to be in any so call "Center" they were born to be free, then Chinese don't have much regard for animals rights, just for the money they obtain from them, so said this equals an eye for an eye.

What a horrible way to die for both man and tiger?

When will humans realize that wild animals, are WILD ANIMALS. Wild animals are intended to roam free. This must stop or humans and animals will continue to needlessly die due to human stupidity.

Very unfortunate for the man"s family..He was doing his job and made a fatal mistake.Tigers are not playful pussycats ,they will attack and kill.We treat them with respect and stay away from their terrain.

This was a wild creature. Tigers are forced to live an unnatural existence because we cannot leave them alone. The man's death was tragic but the plight of the tigers is deeply heartbreaking. The whole situation is extremely sad.

The man got what he deserved, if I was that tiger I would do the same, I am on the tigers side.

"The vicious animal" The person who wrote that is a dumb ignorant sack of crap! That poor tiger is fed up and rightfully so! Who would love to live like that? Who would not defend him/herself? At least the poor tiger got to attack and kill some of the cruel people that are making his/her life miserable!

Oh Nancy - I agree with you wholeheartedly. Vicious? That reporter must have an IQ of below 70....

And the bus driver broke all the rules when he got out of his vehicle. Why not use his cell phone to call for help?

Also from the article.
.....There have been several reports of captive tigers mauling humans in recent years. In a 2009 attack, Chinese cops shot and killed two Siberian tigers after they pounced on a zoo worker.-----


Now I wonder why tigers kept in endless captivity would finally snap and turn on those who care for them?
Aren't they supposed to be nice and purry pussy cats?

As long as we keep animals in captivity, creating stress, boredom, and fear, as long will humans be targets for these animals. These animals have no say or rights!

What a shame. Mankind is truly the most destructive species on planet earth.

Thanks for this news Simone

Very sad and very tragic but if there wasn't a "human finger in the pie" in the first instance this would never have happened! Anyone working in any scenario where animals are kept in captivity must take heed - safety procedures and warnings are not there just for the fun of it! The tiger does NOT deserve to 'suffer the consequences' of this tragic incident; the driver should have been able to call for assistance without the necessity of having to get out of the bus in the first place!
