Yep, Singaporeans are discussing, bitching and debating about the recent white tiger attack. It's funny how all of a sudden, some people have become animals experts. I told a cabby off yesterday. The idiot knew nuts about big cats. I know nuts about them but I do know something. One should never enter their enclosure!!!
I used to work at the Singapore Zoo. Believe me when I say this, the keepers practise extra caution when working with animals. In my time at the zoo, I've been tossed by a bull, bitten by an Indian Rock phython, scratched by a Celebus Ape and cornered in a room by two curious sealions. But hey, I loved working in the zoo.
Anyhow, the guy that jumped into the enclosure deserved everything he got. I know he died but he deserved it nonetheless. What was he thinking?!
Maybe he had a mental breakdown or was suffering from depression. The tigers would have been shot had the shooters arrived sooner than the five minutes they took. Think about it... Would that have been fair? Hell no! These beautiful white tigers didn't do anything wrong in my books. I would have done the exact same thing if someone entered my house uninvited.
I'll like to enforce the fact that this contract worker didn't fall into the enclosure. He deliberately jumped in and crossed the moat. After which, he provoked the curious tigers with a broom. What followed next can only be explained by the video that was taken by a tourist. I hope to see the video someday.
Well folks, what do you think? Kindly leave your comments below...
