Liger kills animal handler

 

Peter Getz, experienced animal handler, was killed by a liger on Wednesday. The liger, a 1,000 pound lion-tiger hybrid, is in captivity at an animal sanctuary in Oklahoma.

The Safari's Wildlife Sanctuary in Broken Arrow, OK has protocol for dealing with large carnivorous creatures, which Getz violated when he entered the cat's enclosure. The liger bit him on the neck and the back before he was rushed to a hospital.

  And  
 
They are trying to determine if they need to put the animal down? This is a freaking animal sanctuary for cripes sake. I guess the instinctive need for capital punishment runs deep.

Lions and tigers were never meant to procreate. What's next, bears? Oh my!

  Well  
 
I don't think they should put the animal down. It IS a dangerous animal, and it was known by the park as such - so when he violated rules and entered the cage with the deadly animal, it became his fault.
