Thanks for posting Simone. I also saw some coverage on the nightly news. I'm glad the trainer is OK and I hope the tiger will not suffer as a result of this incident. Tigers and other apex predators can do a lot of harm in a few seconds when they become overly stimulated during play. I wonder whether there is a link between that level of excitement and the tedium they may otherwise experience as a result of being used for display and entertainment. Domestic cats can be just as uninhibited when playing with people but they don't have the equipment to do serious injury.

a wild animal is always a wild animal...and unpredictable.
