Tiger Attack - Darwin Award

Right after the tiger attack at the SF Zoo, my sister (who doesn't live here) asked if there was any local information on the attack that hadn't made the national press. I told her that accounts were conflicting, but those involved were relatively young and not career criminals so odds were very good that the truth would come out soon enough.

In today's SF Chron is an article where Paul Dhaliwal admitted that they not only taunted the tiger, but stood on a railing and waved their arms while doing so.

While this doesn't excuse the Zoo's wall being too low, it does suggest that some sort of Darwin award is in order here - though it's sad that the least drunk one of the three was the one who died.
