Hmmm... too bad for Roy but I can't say that I feel all that sorry for him.... If some "magic dude" whipped my head, I'd drag him behind a curtain too.

I've been close to a tiger before and they are really powerful. Even being playful they can do alot of damage with those huge paws. I had a 9 month old female lion jump up on me and swatted me on the side of the chin with one of her paws and I saw stars lol. You really have to keep your wits about you around them all. I guess even a guy with a lifetime of experience can still get blindsided. Hope he is going to be okay.

Yay! Go kittie go! I've always been rooting for those tigers to make a meal out of them.

Ya got that right TRD! I guess tigger got sick of all the cat chow and decided to add a little fruit to his diet.

WhutEvur!

Now if only Steve Irwin would get tagged by a king brown, all would be right with the world.

Why is everyone so happy this guy got attacked? Give me a break!!! Sounds like someone has an inferiority complex.

I think it's bad he got attacked. Odds are the animal will be put down, so all you folk that are happy that he got attacked are happy an animal will be put down. As for him whipping the tiger on the head with the microphone, I think I'd be beating the tiger with anything within reach if it was biting me on my arm too. The tiger bit then Roy whipped the tiger to try and get it to let go.

i think that its been a long time coming...these two "entertainers" have been waiting a long time for this kind of accident. I say they've been waiting because they've been "using" wild animals for they're income for a long time and its a no-brainer that messing with the big badboys is wanting a little hurt!!! Like it or not they were just unlucky s.o.b's that got bit by the hand that feeds them.. don't like to see a person hurt but if I'm under my car with my buddy holding it up....lol

Well i think no one should be using tigers for entertainment... i think its stupid, (zoos are fine but for a act its kinda stupid) that why im kinda happy that he was attack.. i do feel sorry for him, also i think it was going to come anyways.. i mean tigers a wild animals like all animals, and sometimes they have the instenct to attack, so i feel alittle happy this guy was attacked just for being a bone head...

It's not like these two guys are slumlord animal owners. They have owned (in their own home) and trained these things for 20+ years. They are a part of their lives, and are treated VERY well. Anyone who says that he deserves what he got, has a real problem.
