Investigators are trying to determine what led to the fatal mauling of a zoo worker by a tiger in northwest England, police said Saturday.

Sarah McClay, 24, died after being attacked Friday by a Sumatran tiger

I got a chance to play with some baby tigers a few years ago.  One of them got a little rough, and I thumped him on the nose and said "No!".  He pulled his head back and looked me right in the eye, not intimated one bit.  Even at only a couple of months old, those things knewexactly what they were:  apex predators.  The look he gave me clearly said, "Come back an see me in six months, food".

Harry_Seldon: Tigers are not some unthinking killing machines.

OK, try to imagine yourself in the big cat enclosure. You get your first look at this pussy cat as you enter a clearing. He moves like a house cat, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex - he'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Sumatran tiger. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side.

Tigers don't usually kill people in their social group because their social groups generally consist of tigers.

I know what you meant, but my point retains validity I think. Tigers aren't domesticated, this sort of thing is to be expected to some degree. Still sucks, though.

Yeah, they think that. Of course a few more light whacks earns a little subservience from them. Of course the best way to do that is a high powered rifle. Come see me in 5 years, throw blanket.

To play devil's advocate for a moment...

Big cat-related attacks (and fatalities) in zoos/sanctuaries are actually quite rare events, especially when compared to other animal care occupations such as folks, who work with horses, cattle or dogs.

 Like almost everything else, we can blame the media for sensationalising every big cat-related incident, as someone getting kicked to death by a horse might be a local story at best, but a zookeeper getting "mauled"?

zOMFG!!! International News!!!

We just love our scary predator stories. Same thing with shark attacks. Even though they're rare, they're automatically lead, International news.

There was a young lady of Riga,
Who smiled as she rode on a tiger.
    They returned from the ride
    With the lady inside
And the smile on the face of the tiger.

and in Latin:

Puella Rigensis ridebat,
Quam tigris im tergo vehebat.
    Externa profecta,
    Interna revecta;
Risusque cum tigre manebat.

Well dieing generally sucks even if it is doing something you like. I had more people I knew than I care to count that have died playing with motorcycles or fast cars. Also one crunched between a wall and an elephant, also one that enjoyed playing with hot snakes that died while doing it.

Big cat-related attacks (and fatalities) in zoos/sanctuaries are actually quite rare events, especially when compared to other animal care occupations such as folks, who work with horses, cattle or dogs.

Of course they're rare. Big cats are rare. Horses, cattle, and dogs are common.
