deperate? deranged? drugged?

A tiger that mauled a man who jumped into its cage Friday at the Bronx Zoo in New York will not be euthanized, zoo officials said. The tiger "did nothing wrong."

No word on whether the man, who was hospitalized after the incident, will be euthanized.

The 25-year-old man was later quoted as responding approximately-- when asked why he did it: "Everyone makes his own choices in life."

  1. Mystical!

    Locally the news reported the Tiger Leaper pursued a mystical desire:

    Police said Saturday that Villalobos had told detectives that it was without fear that he leaped from an elevated train into the animal's den. His reason, they said, was that "he wanted to be one with the tiger."


    Wonder if he"ll try to find a Hiding Phoenix next.
