TIGER ATTACK VICTIMS USED SLINGSHOT ON TIGER

December 31, 2007 --
SAN FRANCISCO - Two brothers who were injured when a tiger attacked them at the San Francisco Zoo had slingshots on them at the time, a source said.
An empty vodka bottle was also found in a car used by Amritpal Dhaliwal, 19, and his brother, Kulbir, 23, on the day of the mauling, which left 17-year-old Carlos Sousa Jr. dead, according to the source.
The discoveries could be an indication that the brothers may have taunted the 350-pound Siberian tiger before it leapt from its grotto.
San Francisco cops have said since the Christmas Day incident that there was no indication the tiger was provoked.
The brothers have not commented since they left a hospital Saturday.
When the zoo opens tomorrow, the tigers will not be on display, as officials work to ensure that their enclosure is safe.
Meanwhile, an unidentified couple was allowed to hold their wedding at the zoo last night under tight security. Guests had to clear special checkpoints.





i guess getting all liquored up and taunting a goddamn tiger wasnt the best idea after all. i'm just sorry the tiger didnt kill all three of them. somebody ought to give the tiger and award.

Either the SF Zoo actually didn't KNOW their fence was four foot less than the standard for restraining tigers (which would be gross negligence) or they did know and didn't care (which would have been CRIMINAL negligence).

Either way, this is going to cost them a ton of money....and rightly so.

At least the tiger hasn't been put down... or has it? Ugh!

i guess technically the tiger put down one of the asshats with the slingshots

and , by the way, the lesson here is not in adequate fence heights but in the fact that it might not be a good idea to taunt something that might , no..i take that back, will kill you.....

Ok there's two sides to this story. Sure inadequate fence heights but why the fuck were they drunk and had not just a slingshot but slingshots on their person at a zoo? Come on you do the math! Not saying he deserved to die, and it should have been the zoo's responsobility to make sure it was properly enclosed. But come on when you play with fire don't get mad when you get burned! They should have stayed home and watched Discovery channel instead!

The two a--holes that lived should be charged with the murder of the a--hole that was killed and the zoo should file civil charges against the two for their responsibility in the death of this beautiful animal. The zoo deserves monetary restitution for the loss of the tiger even though that does absolutely nothing to undo the injustice of this animal being killed for reacting in accordance with its natural instincts.
