Sorry for the really short excerpt, it’s a really short article. I couldn’t resist the title, though.

‘Pulled THE ARM into the cage’ sounds an awful lot like the arm was detached at that point????

They should rename it ‘Liberal RE-Education Center’ — a place where libs can learn about The Wild.

Other articles say that despite the air rescue flight his injuries were minor and he is recovering fine. They think the tiger was playing.

Educational? Try this.

Keep your hands out of the cage.

...the Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue and Educational Center...

Meaning someone got a government grant to pay for their personal passion.

“That’s a long way to go to bite a man.’’ I’ll say it is. No wonder kitty took a bite out of the guy. He was hungry from all that walking.

I helped take care of a litter of the Tigers at the Knoxville zoo....even at 20# each they are a handful. Now the adults, I stayed far away. If I could feel their breath I knew I was way too close.

Detroit might as well send the Tigers to play the Packers next time. They can't do any worse than the Lions.
