Attendance Up at Zoo After Tiger Attack

Oh I hope he mauls me too!

Attendance was up at the San Francisco Zoo following a tiger attack that killed a young man on Christmas Day, a zoo spokesman said Saturday.

Everyone wants to see the tiger that commited this act of...tigerness.

The zoo was closed for eight days following the tiger attack, which left 17-year-old Carlos Sousa Jr. dead and two brothers injured. Police were investigating whether the tiger was taunted before attacking the three victims.

If the tiger wasn't provoked, then will he be arrested? And how exactly did a tiger kill a person at a zoo. Did we do away with the whole bars idea? I must have missed something.

Other zoos that have endured mishaps have seen similar spikes in attendance, which zoo officials have attributed to the publicity and morbid curiosity.

Same reason why movies and television shows about serial killers are so damn popular.
