She pulled her own arm out. The tiger didn't maul her

The Garvin County Sheriff's Office confirmed that the woman was mauled


Mauled or not mauled?
 
2013-10-13 10:25:28 PM
He's not wrong. She put her arm in the cage, she might as well have taken a chainsaw to it.

Wild animals, especially carnivores, should not be trifled with.

And this is why you don't dance the Hokey Pokey at zoos.
 
2013-10-14 12:07:33 AM
Was this a known dangerous animal?  Then yeah, shes a dumbass.
If this was "Tigger the tiger, sure you can scratch his belly"  then they need a suin.

She didn't lose her arm, subby...
 
2013-10-14 12:13:36 AM
So the employee is congress, the tiger is the shutdown, and the zoo owner is Obama? Or are the voters the tiger? I'm sorry, I just don't understand the analogy.

So she's one of those lizard people that can just drop a limb when attacked. I knew it, they're here!!

OK.

For those who missed it the FIRST 10,000 TIMES:

Don't - that is to say, DO NOT - EVER. Stick. Your. Arm. In the Tiger Cage.

In fact, if you were to avoid caging tigers in the first place, you wouldn't have a cage containing a caged tiger to feed your damned arm to, would you?
 
2013-10-14 12:21:20 AM
Don'y you hate it when people pull off their own limbs then try to blame the wildlife? Pisses me right off every damn time.
 
2013-10-14 12:21:31 AM
The tiger bit onto her arm, and in her struggles to get away, she pulled her arm off! Duh! If she'd just stayed calm and not struggled, her arm would still be attached! Of course, she'd be dead, but the arm wouldn't be gone! Why are you all so dense?

It's a TIGER! They're all dangerous. Their mouth is specifically designed to take meat off living mammals instantly. They can kill you by accident, too, with a misplaced paw swipe.

The victim's a supervisor. She should've known NOT to put any body part there. Anything that gets into a wild animal's territory is considered food or a threat. The owner is correct, it's the victim's fault and not the tiger...unless that tiger is super smart that it can say "It's GRRRRRRRRREEEEAAAT!" while trying to get kids to buy a certain brand of cereal.

Since this happened in Oklahoma, one can assume that everyone cited in the article has the reasoning skills of a 13 year old. Only dipshiats reside in OK.

It's also possible that this was a tame tiger who thought it was playing. Not the tiger's fault that it's 300 pounds of muscle, claws and teeth.

Even if someone said it was ok to pet Tigger's belly, I would have to think hard about it....but at any rate, no one should ever stick his arm into any animal cage. It is their safe place and they are likely to bite on general principle.

I suppose some of the trouble is that if the tiger is accused of mauling an employee, the tiger could be killed.   That seems unreasonable, because it is pretty natural for any caged animal to grab something that enters a cage.

So, this is clearly an accident caused by the caught coat, the employee's fault for disobeying procedure, or the owner's fault for establishing unsafe procedures and/or conditions.

Considering the owner's defensiveness and rush to blame the employee, I wonder if this is something unsafe due to either conditions or procedures he'd established, or forgotten to establish..

Can't say I disagree with him. She knew better. Animals of any sort should always be treated with caution...especially farking tigers.

If the tiger gets put down, I will be seriously pissed. The only reason I can in good conscious support the existence of zoos is that we are preserving the genetics of endangered species.

Wouldn't it be awesome if a rogue tornado ripped this place to shreds, freeing the tigers to gorge themselves on the slow and squishy Oklahoma populace?

I need to go get the tornado machine warmed up...

Or maybe we live in a ridiculously litigious country with 24 hour news channels just looking for someone to blame the instant something bad happens. He's trying to get out his side before the media starts pouncing on him, and he's right to do so.

It's a large, flesh-eating, cat. Precisely how dense to you have to be in order to shove your arm down its gullet and claim it wasn't your fault because you weren't *specifically* instructed you not to?

NEVER put any part of your body into a cage, even if said cage is empty.

The tiger is carrying his baby.    I guess that would be a higer?  Human tiger hybrid, ohh great now I can't sleep.

Ten bucks says this guy has done the same damn thing a bunch of times.  And everyone else has done the same thing, just that she got her arm stuck in the cage when she was doing something that everyone else was doing as well.

I don't know the whole story here, but I am certainly aware that people at work always follow each other's example... I don't care what you do or where you work, it happens everywhere I have worked.

Tigers are all cute and cuddly and awesome until one day, your arm gets mauled to bits. You really couldn't pay me enough to put any part of me into a cage with an animal that could kill you as easily as look at you.

Wow does MC Hammer know that he stole his wardrobe?  This guy looks like a weapons grade douche.  How does one wear stupid shiny shirts around a big cat like that and not get mauled.  I am sure he would put the cat down if that happened...

It's not something they pay you do. In fact, zoos have elaborate systems of redundant fencing and pulleys so just such an event doesn't occur.
