Cute: Siberian tiger Rasputin killed his keeper with a single bite to the throat after a door was left unlocked


Horror: The keeper, named as Martin H, was laying out food for the tigers in their outdoor enclosure while they were inside

Meat Pie,

What do you think the reason(s) might be for the tiger to kill its keeper?

Accident?

The tiger is a carnivorous predator / top of the food chain Despite being kept and fed that instinct to hunt and kill prey is always there and may resurface at any time
Nice kitty !
