Tiger Mauling!

Vitali— A 27-year-old Canadian man was mauled early last Monday by a Siberian tiger after he and a friend broke into the Calgary Zoo and scaled an outer perimeter  fence around the animal’s exhibit.  While seriously injured, the man is expected to recover, and his friend was not hurt.

The two men stood between the outer fence that they scaled and an inner cage where the tiger, Vitali (pictured) was housed.   Once the two-year-old tiger was startled, he probably hooked the one man with a claw, dragged his arm in, and continued to attack, officials said.

The tiger was trying to protect itself, officials added, and had never previously attacked any people.  Vitali will remain in his current environment, not being responsible for human stupidity…
