I didn't realize until now that they killed the lion.  It was probably necessary given the situation, but goddamit.  The lion was just, you know, being a lion.  And it kinda sounds like the victim was too busy talking on her cell phone to pay attention to what she was doing - perhaps forgetting to lock the gate.

better article I like the quote in there from her father:
Hanson knew that she was not supposed to be in the same area with the lion (and if the coroner is correct, she apparently she wasn't). However, her father told The Associated Press that Hanson is frustrated that she was not allowed to have contact with the large cats.

People should be careful what they wish for!

chris rock's "bring the pain" special, if i remember correctly. he was talking about a show he had watched about life in prison, and about the subject of "tossed salads", a term used for analingus. he said the inmate being interviewed said you can add "jelly or syrup...i prefer syrup" in order to add flavor and help take your mind off of the true nature of the task which is being performed

Yeah, I know what they SAY, but I totally disagree. Lions will kill and eat a prarie dog. They'll all fight over the scraps if one of them kills a small deer. They eat baby warthogs and other small animals all of the time. I think its just conditioning. Lions and other predators have learned to be wary of humans, just like they would be for other dangerous animals. Especially game that is frequently hunted or poached. But, I think we taste just fine to them once they get past that initial fear.

This captured animal was killed because it was necessary to get the girl medical attention before she died. The fact that she was already dead doesn't make killing the lion a less necessary course of action, unless you (like the majority of Americans) assume police and emergency responders are supposed to have psychic and/or precognitive superpowers.

There are a lot of mystery novels in which the murderer uses a wild animal "attack" to cover up the murder. For example, Track of the Cat by Nevada Barr.  It almost certainly is something that happens more in fiction than in real life, because in real life most murderers do not think out their plans that well.

The autopsy might also reveal minor factors that might have contributed to the attack.  Drugs, side effects to medication, brain blood clots, etc, might have impaired the victim's judgment.

I believe they also have to put the animal down because it has now tasted human blood. I know that is why they put down the animals in wild animal attacks so I imagine the premise is much the same. The lion would now see his handlers as food.

//reality be damned, we need to BELIEVE

Yes I am always amused when people fark with wild animals and then are surprised when they are injured.  The bad part about it is the captive animal is almost always killed for its "crime."

They didn't kill the lion for its crime. They killed it because they were hoping that they could still save her. Which is still a shame...

I believe they also have to put the animal down because it has now tasted human blood. I know that is why they put down the animals in wild animal attacks so I imagine the premise is much the same. The lion would now see his handlers as food.


These aren't "trained" cats....though raised in captivity, they were not supposed to be in close proximity to humans at all...the lion ALREADY saw her as food and acted on it..

DROxINxTHExWIND: theorellior: DROxINxTHExWIND: What the fark is unclear about a lion attacking a slow-moving piece of meat with small teeth and no claws to defend itself?

I read somewhere that most predators don't much care for humans if other game is available. Evidently we're very bony with not a lot of meat on us. I'll have to see if I can find the article.

Yeah, I know what they SAY, but I totally disagree. Lions will kill and eat a prarie dog. They'll all fight over the scraps if one of them kills a small deer. They eat baby warthogs and other small animals all of the time. I think its just conditioning. Lions and other predators have learned to be wary of humans, just like they would be for other dangerous animals. Especially game that is frequently hunted or poached. But, I think we taste just fine to them once they get past that initial fear.


Well if the domestic cat is anything to go by, cats will just kill things because they can. They don't always eat what they kill, and they aren't even necessarily hungry when they kill something. I suspect something only needs to be killable in order to trigger the instinct in a cat, large or small, to kill it.

Now I'll raise two glasses


Amritpal (Paul) Dhaliwal, 19, would later admit to the deceased victim's father that the three had yelled and waved at the tiger.

Stupid is as stupid does.  If you provoke a tiger thinking its funny cuz you're on the other side, you deserve to die.

"The cat had just been fed and there was food in the bowl and the cat had ignored the food in order to have access to this young lady," Hadden said Thursday night.

/hawt


More like we're all either smart enough to realize being full as a tick doesn't stop predators from killing new prey at every opportunitt, or so brainwashed as to be unable to even see words that suggest that any animal except humans will kill when not hungry.

You would think so, but then you're probably not the sort of person who raises a child to be so convinced that she has "empathic" superpowers such that a lion she had "connected" with would never attack her.

/this is newsworthy not because the public demands answers, but rather because the public demands DIFFERENT answers

No, in America that mentality is pretty passe as far as captive animals go. Think of Tilikum the whale- they didn't (and never will) put him down for killing, and he has been connected with three human deaths. And here http://www.nytimes.com/2002/05/14/us/lion-at-busch-gardens-severs-kee p er-s-arm-after-a-feeding.html  is another case of a woman who was attacked by a lion through the cage. She lost her arm, it "tasted blood", and they did not put it down.
