When Party Animals Go Wild...

Three victims of a tiger attack at a city zoo taunted the animal moments before it struck, killing one of the men, court documents have revealed. Full story.

How to taunt a tiger:

1. "Ever heard of the dead cat bounce theory?"
2. "'s the move to the zoo working out?"
3. "Does your neighbor still fling feces at you?"
4. "I think that would make a great rug"

Remember kids, if these don't provoke the tiger, there's always the ever-reliable:

5. "Here, kitty kitty"

Can someone tell me how waving at a tiger could be construed - by the tiger, of course - as "taunting"? Hmm? Being a bit touchy, aren't we, Tatiana?

depends on what you're waving at the tiger, no?

well, waving a fist at a tiger is not taunting. It's obviously a threat and as we all know, the aggression will not stand.

*this* aggression will not stand, man! what's *happening* to you?! (though i do appreciate the "am i wrong" over at bmotp's).
