School defends itself saying the handlers were always there with the tiger.

Were they all wearing Lady Gaga meat dresses? Because if not, I'm not sure how that would have made any difference.

Well, it was in a cage, so it wasn't a danger to anyone, the complaints seem to be that people felt it was cruel to have a tiger in a cage as entertainment.

Also, wtf, tigers and fire jugglers at a prom?  Whatever happened to some balloons, streamers, and a budget DJ in the school gym?

I kind of feel bad for the tiger.  How many times did that poor bastard have to listen to "Wonderful Tonight?"

No.

Lions live in veldt. They would not survive anywhere near a jungle.

Tigers excel in jungle areas. It's their domain.

You get rid of the tiger, and the whole theme sort of falls apart and becomes not realistic.

"Tigers are wild animals. They don't need to be displayed as objects for our amusement. They don't like the fire, the cages, the music, the teenagers with the cameras, they didn't ask for that, they don't have voices," she told CBS4's Joan Murray.

If they don't have voices, how does she know what they like or don't like?

You go to Christopher Columbus High what did you expect? It's named after someone orders of magnitude worse than any Civil War participant.  That must be one crazy rich burb to blow that much on a High School prom.

This name must be so common in the US people have barely highlighted it.
Didn't they ban Columbus Day or something a few years ago?
The natives need to start breeding more to have a louder voice.

No, a few states and cities renamed it. "Indigenous Peoples' day", "Discoverer's Day" stuff like that. Seems like a white wash job to me.  Almost nobody pays any attention it's just another bank holiday.  I like having another day off that the rest of you have to work and all but they should just get rid of it.  I don't think even Native Americans really care one way or the other. Technically Columbus had little effect on North America. It's not like he actually discovered anything and he worked for Spain not England. It's South America and the Caribbean he brought murder, enslavement and VD to. Sure Florida and some of the western states.  It's only a holiday her because the Catholic church had good lobbyists. And they only cared because when they were feeling left out of the fraternal organization market and decided to make one they wanted a name that said both Merica and Catholic and didn't pay a lot of attention to the history.

With a name like Christopher Columbus, I'm not the least bit surprised at their lack of enlightenment.
