Zoo Owner’s Fault that Star Attraction Tiger Cub was Eaten by Her Parents — 10 Comments

  1. So, despite the expert advise that the cub not placed with the parents, he did it anyway so as to free up a cage for another animal ($$$). He sent that poor little girl to her death. He should never have any contact with any animal again. He’s a monster, just like all animal abusers are.

  2. So I’m assuming that the cub was taken for hand rearing and then as an adolescent put into a pen with two adult tigers.
    that sort of animal husbandry 101 under NO. Many wild animals that are born in captivity reject their offspring at birth. Parenting is part instinct and part learning from their own social upbringing with their own species. It’s possible neither tiger recognized it as one of their own. What a dimwit. The chances of zoos ever being closed 100% is slim and in the future until then there has to be some educational level set for anyone dealing with captive animals.

      • I forget who sponsored the study but it was from a reliable source that almost all Tigers in captivity both in zoos and especially zoos like this one and privately owned do not carry congenital defects from inbreeding that make them unsuitable to be used in increasing the population of wild tigers. So producing a cub is often a form of negligence and simply polluting the gene pool further.
        Also consider that the young tiger thrown in with two adults after being hand reared would likely have a fear response that could trigger the adult cats. Akin to throwing your domestic puppy in with a pack of wild wolves.

  3. This is a shame, but if he needed help and had taken advice from a reliable source, this as well as other tragedies might have not happened . However I do understand that bad things can go unnoticed until a health issue has gone beyond the point of no return (for instance a viral epidemic or bot fly infestation). This is the reason why it is pertinent that all staff members are well trained and keep tabs on the animals and their health status, which is extremely crucial before and long after surgical ANY procedures.
