The Tiger Attack at the San Francisco Zoo wasn’t the Only Story about Urbanized Tigers

Tiger Shot in Dallas Christmas Day

A story About a Tiger in Harlem

Is America Turning into Safari Land? 

The deadly tiger attack at the San Francisco Zoo a few days ago was a tragedy.

Another tragedy either occurred or was prevented on Christmas Day, depending upon your point of view.

This time it was in Dallas, TX.

The body of a female tiger was found shot to death near an apartment complex. Officials at the Dallas Zoo were notified and a veterinarian performed a necropsy on the tiger yesterday.

This reminded at least one person of the story of a tiger found in a Harlem apartment a little over 4 years ago.

THE HARLEM TIGER

From CNN back in October of 2003.

A man who kept a 400- to 500-pound Bengal tiger and a 3-foot alligator as roommates in his Harlem apartment was in custody Sunday, charged with reckless endangerment, police said.

The story was touched off by a dog bite, police said.
