Color Me Surprised

A zookeeper has been mauled to death by a tiger at a zoo in Florida.

Stacey Konwiser, 38, known as a "tiger whisperer" because of her skill in dealing with the animals, suffered a “severe bite” while performing basic tasks in the tiger enclosure at Palm Beach Zoo. 
She had reportedly been preparing for a 'Tiger Talk’, a regular show for zoo visitors that she carried out daily, when the incident occured. She was rushed to St Mary's Medical Centre but later died from her injuries.
This is what you get from working with dangerous wild animals and forgetting that they were dangerous animals. People will say that the tiger went crazy but he didn't go CRAZY, he went TIGER! All it takes for one bad show and you learn quick what it means to be in the jaws of an alpha predator, even a zoo pampered one.
These are the only two kinds of tiger you should ever mess around with - the baby ones and the furries who dress like tigers.

What about Tigger? I don't think he's going to maul anyone.
