Tiger drama in local ZOO + animals - PHOTOS

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 22, 2012, 10:48 AM


Hi people!

Once more sorry for low activity. Thesis, thesis. Thesis. Thesis. DIES.

Today a white tiger in Czech ZOO Liberec attacked a young guy (he was on practise, not a visitor), who was saved thanks to bravery of two female keepers who hit the cat with some bucket to get his attention. The tiger escaped from the exhibit, so three people, all of them injured by the tiger, stayed inside the cage. The tiger was shot with some drugs and went limp. Fortunately, this whole accident seems to have a happy end, injuries are not severe and the tiger has not been harmed. Just wow, huh... Drama!

Finally a feature for Kiriban winner and then some animal photos. Please keep your fingers crossed for me, so I can finish my thesis soon. Thank you!

Glad to hear that no one got hurt. Also, glad to know the Tiger did not get harmed either.

I got to say, you guys handle your animals a lot of better than we would her in the US some times.

I think in all profi ZOOs, the staff is doing the best. I am happy that in this case, people and also the animal were finally ok - but I think if the tiger would be about attacking some more peope, they would shoot him :( but I would have to agree with that because although I love animals, staff must always prefer protection of humans to protection of dangerous animal...

But as I saw, I am really grateful for this happy end :D

We do the same here but sadly some of our zoo are pretty under budget or over due for a make over. The Potter Park we have here in Michigan, last time I visit them, most of exhibit were pretty small.:(

I was surprised that American ZOOs do not seem better than local ones :(

Well it's because our economy is doing so badly up to the point that some zoos have no choice but to close down and put the animals in better places.
