she told us she was hardcore
2006-07-12 09:28:45 AM  
Mr Oosterweghel said the tigers would not be destroyed.

2006-07-12 09:28:45 AM  
YA! Darwin!!

You win again!

maybe the BAL kept her from being completely eaten
2006-07-12 09:30:08 AM  
Teenagers! They're GRRRRRrrrrEAT!
2006-07-12 09:30:13 AM  
I think she took "Eenie, Meanie, Miney, Moe" a little too seriously.
2006-07-12 09:30:20 AM  
Glad to see the tigers will be ok. The death of morons who try to treat what is one of the planet's biggest predators the way they would treat a housecat is not a reason to kill a great, noble (and endangerd) beast.

This is just natures way of saying "Stay the fark away from me!"
Or "Lunch!"

Note to all print reporters:
Please include a bit of location information near the beginning of the article. Please.

Not until 3/4 of the way through do we discover that this was maybe/probably at the Dublin Zoo.
2006-07-12 09:30:58 AM  
But the stuffed ones on her bed always talked NICE to her?

2006-07-12 09:31:22 AM  
but if she had put her arm thru my fence and my dog bit her the authorities would have my dog put down. . . .
2006-07-12 09:31:30 AM

Roy approves.
2006-07-12 09:31:35 AM  
better than the alternative....the guy on the left!

2006-07-12 09:31:58 AM  
Ah, have RTFA now, she didn't even get killed. She should count herself damned lucky then.
2006-07-12 09:32:03 AM  
Not dead. Better luck next time Darwin.
2006-07-12 09:32:13 AM  
bill the cat submitted this earlier with a funnier headline!
2006-07-12 09:33:07 AM  
Those animals... it's amazing how strong their jaw and neck muscles are.

Is it true that they could grab your forearm in their mouth, and literally yank your arm off?
2006-07-12 09:33:11 AM  
Apparently she had just visited the lion's cage and was hoping to visit the bear area after taunting the tigers. Oh my!
2006-07-12 09:33:15 AM  
grunge: but if she had put her arm thru my fence and my dog bit her the authorities would have my dog put down. . . .

You keep your dog in a zoo?
2006-07-12 09:33:18 AM  
TFA:She was taken to James Connolly Memorial Hospital where her condition was described as stable.
almost had her...
2006-07-12 09:34:11 AM  
Is it just me, or did popularity kill the Darwin Award?

It USED to be for when people died horrible and funny deaths... not just any stupid thing that happened. Or in other words, I disapprove of darwin award hand out to this stupid drunk and ignorant fool.

However, I do relish a discussion of a follow up - perhaps she'll go back to 'get revenge.' Or maybe she'll try to do go over the guards in place next time she visits the sharks at the aquarium.

Now that is entertainment.
2006-07-12 09:34:20 AM  
The 19-year-old, who it is believed had been drinking ...

No kidding

It's a shame to waste a perfectly good drunk 19 year old girl like that though
2006-07-12 09:34:22 AM  
Finally a rational response from the zoo.

"Of course they attacked her. They are tigers. Duh!"
2006-07-12 09:34:24 AM  
If only there were three fences? When will learn?
2006-07-12 09:34:43 AM  
Mr Oosterweghel said the tigers would not be destroyed.

Personally I think the GIRL should be.

It's about time someone started up a political movement that advocates the removal of warning labels off all products in order to reduce the imbicile population.
2006-07-12 09:35:22 AM  
what, no youtube vid?
2006-07-12 09:35:50 AM  
Give that girl a hand!
2006-07-12 09:37:42 AM  
I think Darwin just smacked himself on the forehead and rolled his eyes...
2006-07-12 09:39:09 AM  
Imagine how stupid she's going to feel explaining the stump that was here arm to any future date.

"Well it's kinda a funny story..."

Why the dumbass tag was created.
2006-07-12 09:40:07 AM  
"That tiger didn't go crazy, that tiger went tiger!"

2006-07-12 09:40:44 AM  
The 19-year-old, who it is believed had been drinking

I would like to hereby dub alcohol: "Darwin Juice".
2006-07-12 09:41:40 AM  
Love the can of Diet Coke
2006-07-12 09:41:49 AM  
I think they should have had more protections in place. After the six foot timber fence, the four foot other fence, and the twenty foot mesh fence, they should have something on the inside to protect the public. You know, like a large, striped predator accustomed to attacking meaty beings. Maybe even a tiger?
2006-07-12 09:43:16 AM  
It's my personal belief that if you're stupid enough to go through all kinds of effort to touch a wild farking animal, then you deserve to get eaten by said animal.

I wonder what it's like being a moran. I bet it's fun.
2006-07-12 09:43:19 AM  
Mr Oosterweghel said the tigers would not be destroyed.

At least they have more sense there than they have in America.

Here in Virginia a 4-year-old boy climbed over a 4-foot-tall fence at a zoo, went up to a chain link fence and stuck his hand thru it to pet a bear, which then bit him. BOTH bears in the enclosure were immediately killed even thru the child was barely scratched. He didn't even require stitches. "RABIES FEARS!" was shouted even though neither bear had any sign of rabies and the mother said she was willing to have her son have rabies shots. Asinine.
2006-07-12 09:44:24 AM  
forthandmultiply HAH! I didn't see that when I did the GIS. Sadly that staltworth gent isn't me, although I wonder where he bought that wicked yellow dragon shirt!

Hilary T. N. Seuss

Brilliant. I second.
2006-07-12 09:45:27 AM  
So, all these parents and children watched this idiot climb over two fences but didn't say anything to anyone about it....? I'd be telling her at the top of my lungs to get the fark away from the big jungle predators.

Hope she's scarred for life as a lesson that apparently she needed to learn the hard way.
2006-07-12 09:47:03 AM

If you've been on Earth for any amount of time, you should know they the tigers are not waving you in. No one even has to tell you that. It's like a gut feeling or something.
2006-07-12 09:47:59 AM  
Always worth remembering:

Tigers are mean,
Tigers are fierce.
Tigers have teeth,
And claws that pierce.
Tigers are great,
They can't be beat.
If I was a tiger,
That would be neat...

2006-07-12 09:49:43 AM  

better than the alternative....the guy on the left!

Looks like a typical furry.

/is one
//and so can make fun of them

icstepec: It USED to be for when people died horrible and funny deaths

No, it used to be for people who removed themselves from the gene pool. Usually by death, or by some other means of destroying their ability to reproduce.
2006-07-12 09:50:26 AM  
It was indeed Dublin zoo. Here's the RTE news coverage of the incident (Real media format type thing) dunno what's in the report since I can't watch it in work.
2006-07-12 09:51:27 AM  
She'll undoubtably file date-rape charges against the tiger because when a girl is drunk, she is not at all liable for her actions.
2006-07-12 09:53:03 AM  
MooglyGuy Bad place to admit your a furry man. Also, that guy in a raccoon suit licking a guy in a bear suit's arse makes me heave.

So some 15-year old was experimenting by stroking some wild pussy?
2006-07-12 09:59:01 AM  
In Dublin's Fair City
You don't pet the kitty
It'll rip off your arm
Straight down to the bone
Then you'll wheel your wheelbarrow
Through streets broad and narrow
Crying: "Fer Godsakes, kids, leave the tiger alone!"

The tiger alone
The tiger alone
Crying: "I'm Molly McStumpy, leave the tiger alone!"

"Mmmmm, stupid never tasted so good."
