Why did the male Sumatran tiger kill his potential mate at London zoo? — 2 Comments

  1. It’s a faulty assumption that two animals of the same species will simply mate if tossed together. Without seeing the video the female may have rejected the male with body language and if he was likely stressed and far from settled in his new home. Humans spend more time and thought in introducing a new cat into their home than was shown here. Two animals ignoring each other in adjoining enclosures doesn’t mean they’re accepting of each other.
