  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A rare white tiger escaped from its enclosure and attacked three employees at a Czech zoo.

The incident happened on Thursday morning at the zoo in the northern city of Liberec.

Lenka Markovica, spokesman for the rescuers in Liberec, said one man was sent to hospital with head injuries.

Unfortunate incident but when you work with wild animals stuff happens, need to make sure those enclosures are well maintained.

They purr after they have eaten you.

Why is it that people keep thinking predators are creations of Walt Disney?

I've seen many many friendly Big Cats loved on by their caretakers. We all have, thanks even more to the I-net.

However, I don't delude myself that any wild animal is warm and fuzzy. :no:

Very good to hear it won't be put down and that the injuries were not life threatening. Things easily could have been much worse.  I held a white tiger cub once, it's something I'll never forget.

I'm glad no one died. People have to remember that they're not working with something tame.

Thank God no one lost his life. You should be extremely careful, when you have to take care of animals like this :tu:

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

Tigers don't purr, they do make a funny sound called chuffing.
