Why are they balking? What do they have to hide? Could it be that they were teasing the tiger prior to the attack, as has been suggested? That would certainly explain why she attacked them, wouldn't it?

I have felt something is "off" from the start with this story. I have to wonder how she got out. Was she helped out or what.....

Something is wrong here - - seriously wrong.

If they've got nothing to hid, then this should be no problem....

From all the accounts I have read, these kids were definitely up to no good and I am surprised that the city attorney hasn't been able to get a judge to order a supeona releasing the information on those phones since there is at least one ambulance attendant as a witness to a conversation between the boys as to keeping their mouths shut about what they did.
Noted with sadness about the young man's death and that a precious tiger was killed because of the selfish, cruel acts of these young men.

I didn't know about the ambulance driver over hearing the conversation between the two young men about what they had done to the tiger. There was a woman there named Miller I believe with her children and she saw them acting all wild toward the tiger and that there were actually four young men, not just three. Did number four take off with the evidence implicating them? Why hasn't number four had the courage to come forward? They did something to enrage the tiger that it felt it was under attack. Did they shoot a bb gun at it and hit it? Did they throw in some meat laced with a drug to make the tiger hyper? Did they lower a rope ladder and climb down it baiting the tiger to go after them? A woman who went to the zoo for three years said Tatiana was very friendly and playful and would greet visitors who she recognized. It's unfortunate they have a high powered greedy lawyer who wants to sue the zoo. I hope what they did to the tiger is revealed. Of course, they and their relatives are probably busy cleaning the inside of the vehicle.

They shouldn't get one red cent and if it's found that they're guilty - they should pay the zoo at the very least.

I agree with Lil soon as I heard about the story on tv I felt that something wasn't right. I immediatley felt that those boys did something to provoke the tiger. I don't think the tiger would've broken out unless it had been provoked. One of the boys might have let it out too just to see what it would do. They were probably drunk after drinking the vodka that was found in their car and thought it would be funny to release the tiger after upsetting it. They obviously are trying to hide something if they aren't allowing their phone records to be searched. I hope these boys get what they deserve.
