SAN DIEGO, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- A female Malayan tiger at the San Diego Zoo died during mating after the male tiger bit her neck and severely injured her spinal cord, zoo officials said.

The two endangered Malayan tigers were involved in the mating process Saturday before guests arrived at the zoo, but it appeared as though the male tiger, Conner became a little too rough with the female, Tiga Tahun, U-T San Diego reported Monday.

two tigers were "involved in the mating process"

After a romantic dinner and roses, I know "Dear, shall we get involved with the mating process tonight?" works every time.

I think this is a horrible shame. She was a beautiful animal, endangered species?

So I’d like to know: a. what the zookeepers might have but did not do to prevent this and b. does this happen when tigers mate in the wild?

Most women like a little neck nibble now and then, but that’s going a bit too far...

I guess we at least know why that part of the species is “endangered”...

a. Nothing. Who's gonna get between the male's teeth and the female?

b. Yes.

“Often the male will grab the [female] by the back of the neck...and sometimes you get an overzealous animal who takes it a little too far. It’s the nature of the beast”...Malayan tigers are highly endangered in the wild.

Well, habitually killing your mate while mating WILL have that result!

Anyone that has had cats knows that male cats always bite the neck of the female during mating. There is no way of preventing this without interrupting the process.

More to the point, his DNA.
But the bible says in the book of Daniel.

Daniel 2 verse 43

43. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

The word " seed " here ? is man kind's DNA.

The media ?
The world ?
The great deception ?

Wants us to believe that the U.F.O.s are " alliens " from another world.

But the truth is ?

They are fallen angels like the Nephilim of the book of Genesses chapter 6 who mated ( there is that term again, mingle themselves with the seed of men, rather in Gen chapter 6 women ).
The word " Nephilim " actually means, fallen ones.

Is it any wonder ? why ? they have to conFUSE and blurr the lines and deceive everyone ?

Feminism and Homosexuality is doing it's thing, to conFUSE, deceive.

Totally unnecessary. Artificial insemination works.

Bet they were experimenting.

Great idea. Here is a cup and some KY, you mind getting the sample from him? Oh, he likes it rough.

I found that to be an interesting question, so I took it to Google and found this:

Artificial insemination. Despite many attempts, only one cub has been successfully produced through artificial insemination. Like many members of the cat family, tigers do not ovulate spontaneously, but are induced to ovulate by mating. The concentration and timing of hormonal injections to stimulate ovulation, and the timing of insemination, is critical to success. More research is needed to refine these procedures.
