Anyone else read the story about the zookeeper mauled to death in NZ by a rare white tiger. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/8069462.stm Tragic for him and his family but what struck me was that they killed the tiger. WHY??? This beautiful creature is a) rare and b) a WILD animal, albeit caged. What was the point in killing it. Surely it was only doing what tigers and other large predators have done for thousands of years. Its called instinct. Surely questions should have first been asked about the security policies of the zoo, which has a bad safety record anyway with several other recent incidents. If we, as humans, are going to keep wild animals in captivity then we shouldn't blame them if a tragedy such as this happens.
