"SAFETY"?!?! It's a farking Sumatran Tiger. That's what it does.

Can't say I thought much of Stevr Irwin. I thought he placed himself and his family in danger needlessly

Oddly enough, I just made a video referencing that lunatic.  Sharing a name and a nationality with that guy is not easy.

still a wild and unpredictable animal, and a cat at that..  and you just keep going ahead and f*cking with one the size of you or larger...
 
2013-11-26 01:29:49 PM  
Yeah, because this doesn't happen at reputable zoos and rehabilitation centers all over the world.

Sounds like some butthurt PETA wrote this headline.

If you watched Irwin at all, you know he always disclaimed his own actions with statements like , "She's angry!  And I can't say I blame her.  I'm in her territory and she feels like I'm a threat to her.  She's going to do whatever it takes to protect herself."

And this situation was about a Tiger getting aggressive during a play session.  Whether or not they should have interactive play sessions with a Tiger is another question.  Or was.  My guess is they'll be using a long stick with a ball attached from now on.

File this one under the heading of, "It's a Wild Animal, Dude".

I know tigers look cute and all, especially when they act like enormous house cats.  But at the risk of stating the obvious, they are EXTREMELY powerful, clawfilled, and toothy compared to puny humans.

I'm sure that this guy knew what he was doing.  I'm sure he was careful.  Just not nearly enough, evidently.

I've heard that every snake that Steve handled on the show had been milked, then placed in a ice cooler for a couple hours to calm it down.  This from a reptile guy who says he worked on the set of a Steve Irwin documentary, when Steve came to the states.

"The zoo, which hosts three Bengal and eight Sumatran tigers, said it was investigating the incident."

Upon further review, it was probably the tiger that did this.

WTF does Steve Irwin to do with Crocodile Dundee? Congrats subby, you know two Australians...one of them being fictional.

Getting in a cage with a Tiger is reckless - period.

That guy is an idiot on many levels.

1. "Playing" with a Sumatran Tiger
2. When the tiger attacks him. Quick! Turn your head and expose your neck so he can get a better grip!

Isn't covering your head and neck as best you can the first thing they teach and tiger school? If there is such a thing

They tried to teach him but he was quoted as saying "hell no, we won't go, Yukon Ho!"

Well, Siegfried does. Roy wants a Bliss Board.

Astorix: Can't say I thought much of Stevr Irwin. I thought he placed himself and his family in danger needlessly


He was an attention whore.  Sure, he genuinely loved and cared for animals, but when people started cheering and offering TV shows, he wanted to put on sensational show and push the limits for the crowd.  Did he think he was getting more people interested in learning about animals by doing this?  I don't know.  But you've got to respect the wild.  Or go into it.  You ride the fence long enough and you'll get a splinter.

Safety nothing. If you work with large animals over a long period of time, you will get bitten/mauled. Check out the arms of anyone and everyone who has that job and you will see the scars. Even if an animal that size doesn't mean to really hurt you, it's not like the little scratches your frisky kitten gives you.
