Tiger probably didn't want that damned dirty ape putting its stinking paws on him. I gather this is not an issue for all Tigers from Florida.

Sounds like a pretty well thought out plan. Gibbon creates a diversion so the tiger can make a dash for it. Probably would have gotten away with it if only the elephant could have successfully hot-wired the car in the parking lot.

I was there and saw it happen. I plan to sue tomorrow.
