KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – A woman in a jungle region of northern Malaysia rescued her husband from a tiger attack by clubbing the beast on its head with a large wooden soup ladle and chasing it away, police said Monday.

The tiger pounced on Tambun Gediu while he was hunting squirrels Saturday near his home in a jungle settlement of the Jahai tribe, a police official in Malaysia's Perak state said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to make public statements.

Clicking the remote for a change of pace from politics & the Grammys; what luck to discover Animal Planet’s “Fatal Attraction” marathon.

The shows documented the gruesome demise of foolish people obsessed with keeping snakes, crocodiles and huge predator cats; lions, tigers, panthers and leopards as pets.

I realize that *’private property’ rights FReepers* might think it is nobody’s business what folks do with their lives and land - but the collateral risk to others cannot be understated.

Small size is the only reason a house cat can be a pet. If they weighed 160 lbs. instead of 16 we would be snacks instead of servants.

If this happened in America, progressives immediately would introduce legislation to register these dangerous soup ladles or perhaps ban them altogether.
