The "victim" has said repeatedly it was her own fault she was injured and repeatedly, publicly made it known that the tiger should not be held responsible and campaigned against the tiger being put down for her mistake. The article is sensationalistic and ridiculous, not to mention completely unnecessary... just like most articles these days. Why let actual facts get in the way of a good headline, right subby?

Break protocol in a machine shop and you'll lose your arm. Break protocol at a camp fire and you'll get horribly burned. Break protocol at a tiger cage and you'll be et in whole or in part.


This.

I have a hard time seeing this as assinine, as the tag claims. If you stick your arm in a tiger cage, you should be prepared to lose it. It's that simple. It doesn't matter if "everyone else does it." Who the fark cares? If I worked at a zoo and everyone else stuck their arm in the tiger cage, I'd call them all farking nuts, and then laugh when one eventually gets bit and say "I told you say."

Harsh, maybe, but oh well. Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons(or tigers), for you are crunchy and taste good with (condiment of choice).

After all dogs have been bred to be "safe" around humans for thousands of years, and still they will occasionally attack (ignoring ones trained to do so). So considering any other large animal "safe" is intrinsically stupid, however well trained or behaved they can be normally.

/Cats like to bite and scratch things

Sadly, if some snot-nose little kid runs up to your cat and gets scratched or bitten....regardless of the situation, you'll be blamed.  Lawsuits and, potentially, the death of your cat.  Animal laws are pretty screwed up.

I've heard of that happening with dogs, but not cats. Is there a precedent of that happening?

To be fair, dog owners are generally required to not let their pets attack people, why is there a double standard that cats are allowed to be right little shiats? Does smacking a cat and disciplining it when it is violent teach it that certain behaviours are just not acceptable, or not?


Not usually, because cats are pretty much considered to be awful nasty creatures and any fool who messes with a cat, regardless of age, deserves it. Also, it's pretty well established that, unlike dogs, cats can't be trained not to scratch & bite. So whereas a dog owner with a known vicious dog can be sued, it's hard to prove an owner has a "known vicious cat" that's MORE vicious than any other cat in the neighborhood--and nobody has ever heard of an attack cat to the best of my knowledge.

You mess with teh kitteh, you get teh clawz, is the prevailing attitude.

If you're the sort of person who needs training to know not to feed yourself to the tigers, well, perhaps working with dangerous animals is not the career for you.

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..

I'd never get a cat. Apparently you get bitten and scratched at random for no good reason, and I am not the sort of person that would enjoy that.

It's how we play.

Cats are awesome, because they're nice to you not because they're obedient and subservient, but because they like you.  Some cats like to be held and petted, I think that's kinda weird.  When I get home, my cat runs and meets me at the door and I pet his head once - this is the "En Garde".  Then we play tag for a few minutes, he tries to grab my hand and I try to tap the top of his head without getting bitten.

The funny thing is, if I just stick my hand out, he'll grab it and bite it, then drop down and look at me as if to say "What, why aren't you playing anymore?"

There's two degrees of domestic cat bites from what I can tell, and I think it comes from a fundamentally different muscle use in the jaw.

The first is a pin, what we're calling a nip in response to your post. Humans have thinner skin than other cats would, and a nip can break it and cause blood, but it's intended to hold in place. When cats wrestle and they're nipping at the necks, or when a mother cat picks up a kitten, that's a pin bite. It's intended to be a first result to "stop" or "hold damn still", like a pinch.

The other is a puncture, which is an actual cat bite. Punctures are designed to break the skin, and due to the bacteria on the teeth, are basically venomous. House cats do not run around doing this to people all the time. You've really got to get them to the end of their stress rope.

Gyrfalcon: Nidiot: So are you saying cats cannot be trained to not bite you, because they are still too closely related to their wild ancestors?

Cat owners are weirder than I first thought.

So if a cat bites you and you immediately smack it in response, what would happen?

It will scratch you and run away.

Cats mostly don't bite, though. I've never seen or heard of anyone BITTEN by a cat unless the cat was badly hurt or fighting with another cat and the person foolishly tried to pick it up. A cat's primary defense is to scratch, and no, you can't train a cat not to scratch. Cats method of aggression is usually (in rough order):
1. Hiss/growl
2. Flee
3. Scratch
4. Bite only when cornered or grabbed.

Anyone foolish enough to ignore the first three, or to pick up a cat that is hissing, is going to get bitten; but no cat is ever going to just bite someone right off the bat unless it (the cat) is ill or hurt. It's not because they're still too close to their wild ancestors, I suspect; but because unlike dogs, they're not social (group) animals and so have no signals for maintaining order. Dogs do--nipping is a way to teach puppies how to behave and snapping is a way to maintain social distance; so you CAN teach a dog not to nip or snap. Since cats use scratching and biting as defensive mechanisms, there's really no way to train them out of it--any more than you can train a dog not to bite when it's cornered or hurt.


My cat will bite my wife's ankle as she goes to bed about 4 times a year. enough to draw blood sometimes. It has its claws too (usually declawed cats learn swatting doesn't work and default to biting.

Given that she stuck her arm in the tiger's cage, I think blaming the victim in this particular case is totally appropriate.

Nip or bite? There's a difference, mainly bleeding. I have a dog who likes to mouth me occasionally. I know he can bite through a lamb bone, but he just mouths me. Some people say he's biting me, but I would definitely know the difference.

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.

Unknown_Poltroon: 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.


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.

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.

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?
