Let's keep this discussion mature due to the nature of the article which involved actual person dying. I am sure we have all read a story or two where a case where an animal has mauled human and have been put down as a result, whatever a dog, tiger or bear. However, something happened just a while ago in Japan that made me think. I'll quote from the news article here. "It's been more than half-a-century since a white tiger was last seen in the wild. The last one know to roam freely was shot in 1958, and the hundreds who remain now live in captivity. On Monday, one of those captive tigers fatally mauled a man at a zoo in Japan. But rather than opt for revenge, his family is intent on keeping the rare animal alive." (Source) There are only 200 white tigers in the entire world. It's very admirable from the family and I wish them nothing but the best to recover from this horrible event. However, it made me thinking... Have people been too quick to judge and put other animals down? Should an animal that attacks person be put down or is there an alternative? Discuss.
