Tiger gets loose at zoo

after jumping a 12 foot fence, coming face to face with a 2 yr old. The Mother calmly walked up to the child and calmly walked away and no one was injured. The tiger was caught and put back in the cage. The fence is now to be put at 14 feet. Are we now safe?

  • The fence need to be more like a cage, with a top. I personally wouldn't feel safe with an extra two feet of fence!

  • The bigger issue is the animal in captivity (yes, I understand why, but I still do not agree with zoos as a whole). If it were not there to begin with, it would not pose a threat to anyone.

    Worst of all is seeing a creature of flight in captivity.

  • Oh WOW! I would seriously hope that 14ft would be high enough to keep it in.
