"There really isn't a circumstance where they (Tiger & keeper) should have been in the same space, so there was some sort of error that occurred here"

Human error, yet again!!!
Thankfully, this time not resulting in the murder of the Tiger!

i don't see what there is to investigate, captured imprisoned wild animals do not make decisions, the keepers do that!!

Very scary. Seen this on the nightly news. They mentioned that something went wrong, because the keeper and the Tiger aren't suppose to be back in that area at the same time.
I pray that she's okay.
Thanks Barb

Thank you darling!

Kinda hate it when HUMANS get involved with anything! Wild animals should never be caged IMHO, like the woman that is suing the Zoo when she went in for a SELFE with the Leopard or whatever. SCREWBALLS!

xoxo Happy Easter Punkin!
