    I watched the video clip about that the other day. The zoo manager or whomever was saying that the zoo worker was acting strange and seemed suicidal. Donno if that's what really happened or if its a coverup.

    There's a clip?! Where can I see it, dude?! With regards to a cover-up, I won't be surprised but I have been to the zoo a few times and it is actually quite difficult to climb over the fence, jump into moat before reaching land - where the tigers are. The fella must be pretty mentally unstable or so determined to die.

    It basically says the same thing as the article. They just show an interview with the zoo director. They don't actually show the mauling :p

    Oh shucks! For a moment, I was so stunned, thinking that someone captured the incident on tape!

    Some newspapers in my country had pictures of the fella just below the tigers attacked! It seems an Australia couple (who were tourists) managed to take some pictures!

    I just heard about this from my mates in school today. Man, our country is getting freakier.

    Damn... I remember visiting that exhibit not too long back. I might have even passed that guy by, for all I know. What a way to become an hero.

    Did you see the pictures of the victim covering his head with the pail? He was probably regretting it or just want to get it over with without seeing the tigers!

    I just think it would have been easier to jump off a building. Getting mauled is a pretty painful way to go, unless on your way out, you wanted to cause trouble for your workplace.

    None taken, dude. Just feel kinda sorry for the fella - he must be seriously mentally ill or high/stoned.

    A couple of dudes who went to the zoo managed to record some footage of it.

    & some of the footage was used as pixs on most newspaper here in S'pore.

    I heard they didn't considering they're endangered and only about 4000 of them around.

    That'd be BS if they did anything to the tigers because some guy wanted to be a jackass.

    There a similar case like this last year wasnt there?
