I have no feelings of sympathy or sadness for Roy being mauled by the tiger. I'm surprised how cold-hearted I am about this, but I'm thinking "good for you, tiger."

I've been thinking the same thing. To their credit, they've bred a great many endanged animals (I don't know if they provide any to zoos or for reintroduction). Still, they've also made lifetime careers from the critters too. In my view, this was similar to skydiving or high altitide mountaineering. ...The odds WILL catch-up sooner or later.

In any case: Royhornkraut....the other, other white meat.

...their tigers live unnaturally in captivity while Roy has been profitting from them. To break an animal's spirit to have them do a bunch of stupid tricks for our amusement... it is generally quite barbaric. Even with horses, they don't call it "breaking a horse" for no reason- and horses are probably the most humanely treated animals of all.

Not to mention that Roy's mere existence offends my sensibilites...

The sad thing is that locally, an "exotic animal collector" had a rare tiger that mildly scratched up a young girl (who I believe was unsupervised at the time). The tiger ended up dead for his efforts... like he would become a frequent offender? We should treat criminals so aggressively!
