Yeah, I don't understand all of these "he had it coming" comments. I agree with mykee--these tigers were really well taken care of, and S&F clearly knew how to do it if they'd been at it for so long. I just hope they don't euthanize the animal...if this situation somehow happened with a snake, I'm sure our concerns would be elsewhere (how would it affect the hobby, public knowledge, etc.) I'm not advocating that tigers become common pets, but I think the bottom line is the same.
