Wild animals and humans just don't get alone, ever
This is the species of tiger that killed that zoo keeper in Florida over the weekend. I don't know if somebody accidentally left his door open so he had access to his habitat while she was in there, or if she was over-confident in her belief that the tigers "knew" her and she alone could go into their enclosure unharmed.
Which ever it is, this is yet another example of the dangers of humans and wild animals in close proximity, not ending well. It never does.
Wild carnivores, whether in the circus, zoo, or as pets, are just biding their time until they have a reasonable chance of killing and eating you. They cannot be tamed.
