Siegfried and Roy had a heart-warming relationship with their tigers, too, until one of them chomped Roy.
There's a private zoo ten miles from me, run by a husband and wife, that has tigers and lions. They also had heart-warming relationships with their animals, until the wife shot and killed one of the lions as it was offering to eat hubby's head.
I'm wondering about the scar on the guy's cheek in photo 11.
Wild animals are ... wild animals.
