    Tiger Attacks, Kills Teen Posing For Senior Pictures

    When will people learn that wild animals are just that? They're not pets or cuddly stuffed animals. How can we blame the tiger for holding true to it's natural animal instincts?

    http://www.newsnet5.com/news/4869665/detail.html

    MOUND VALLEY, Kan. -- A Bengal tiger attacked and killed a teenage girl Thursday at a southeast Kansas animal sanctuary.

    Haley Hilderbrand, 17, of Altamont, Kan., was posing with the tiger for her senior high school pictures at the Lost Creek Animal Sanctuary.

    A news release from the Labette County Sheriff's Office said the big cat was being restrained by its handler, but it attacked the teenager, anyway.

    The 7-year-old tiger was killed.

    Well, great. You take a wild animal, place it in an unfamiliar environment, it reacts naturally and a human being is unfortunately killed, and then the tiger is killed as well.

    Sometimes I really, really love humanity.

    Exactly. Wouldn't want that Bengal tiger in Kansas to pose a threat to anybody else.

    The other day here in Portland someone lost their pet.... a "Siberian Lynx" it had been declawed and was missing for 2 days, when this woman came around the corner to her granddaughter screaming and saw the cat with its mouth on the girls head. GM threw a brick at the cat and it ran, eventually animal control tracked it down and killed it.

    Keeping wild animals as pets is whack.

    Local news anchor reporting this story prefaced it with, "Remember parents, you can always say "no" when your kids ask for things." I couldn't agree more. Pin blame for this one on the parents.

    Are we talking actual tigers or baby tiger fetuses? Because if we're talking baby tiger fetuses than I don't see what's wrong about killing them.

    As if every guy here hasn't been to a bar at some point in his life where that has been a necessity.

    I agree with this, but at the same time, I have no problem with killing one of these "pets" if they get loose. Human safety is my main concern. Everyone who owns one of these exotics claim that they are trained/harmless. The lynx may have been harmless, but the animal control people don't have time to verify this, IMO.

    While I think it was incredibly stupid to get a picture taken with a Tiger, I do feel much sadder that someone lost their daughter than I do for the Tiger.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I think in cases like this they destroy the animal because they are afraid it will develop a "taste" for humans and will become a threat to its trainers, handlers, etc.

    I agree, I was commenting more on the absurdity I guess of anybody owning one of these animals ( even a shelter). In my opinion the only place you should be able to see a tiger is the zoo.

    That was more my take as well. This whole incident is just an unfortunate result of someone else's stupidity. And now a girl and the tiger are both dead.
