This story is just too much.
Have we learned nothing from the Roy Horn tragedy (aside from Siegfried and Roy post-mauling makes an excellent Halloween costume)?
I only went to vet school for two years, but you know what the teach you the first day? 600-pound carnivores with big-ass fangs and claws are dangerous, even if they have cute names like "Bobo". This is NOT hard people.
My favorite part: "The animal's body has since been taken to a secure location for an autopsy."
Tell the pathologist to stay at home - I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the tiger died from the gun shot wounds, not because of an aneurysm, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), lung cancer, or AIDS. But again, vet school for only two years...
