Maybe it was because this guy was suicidal.

Suicide by tiger seems to be a particularly masochistic way to go out.

"We don't know why he went in and why he ended up in the enclosure," Borg told The Associated Press.


To be assimilated by the tigers, I guess.

I would eat a Danish if one climbed into my cage.

"Copenhagen Zoo manager Steffen Straede said it was the first time in the zoo's 152-year history that such an incident has occurred, and there were no plans to reassess its security or to put the tigers down.

"If a person really wants to get in (there), we cannot prevent it from happening," he said."


Hey, US justice system...this is how it should work. It boils down to "This guy was a moron that tried to get in, and he got killed. F him."

Maybe he was wearing a terben and one of the cloth strips came loose, dangling into the cage while he was crawling on top it. This could have excited the cat, triggering a reflexive response, thereby, pulling the man through the bars.

Maybe he was going to stick a remote control bomb up its butt... push the button on the bomb and he and the tiger die like one.

Oh, he just wanted to be one with the tigers. (And two, and three, and four...)

Don't taunt dynamite tigers.

I love it when captive animals get their chance to stick it to the man. I REALLY love it when the bulls get all stabby with the douches running in front of them in Spain.

His family should sue the crap out of them for keeping such dangerous animals in a place he could reach.

The tigers could counterclaim against the family allowing such a retard out where he could get hurt.

Maybe their needed to be a convincing way to get life insurance money to loved ones.

Throw yourself in cat pit without cell, die, family profits. It is an epic way to go.

/The honey badger pit is another matter.

His body was found surrounded by the zoo's three Siberian tigers by a zookeeper early Wednesday.

Is it really hard to say "they were feeding"?

This is how it should be handled - in the US we'd kill all the tigers, rebuild the enclosure & then spend years deciding whether to get more of them or just declare it too dangerous. Not to mention the lawsuits.

This does not answer the question. In fact, it reinforces it.
