Ontario man who owned exotic animals mauled to death by 300 kg pet tiger
By Ciara Byrne, The Canadian Press

SOUTHWOLD, Ont. - A 66-year-old man from southern Ontario, who spent years battling with neighbours to keep wild cats on his property, has been mauled to death by his 300-kilogram pet tiger.

Norman Buwalda went into the tiger's cage on his property in Southwold, Ont. on Sunday afternoon to feed the animal, when police said the man was attacked and killed by the tiger.
Wild animals such as these are just not meant to be taken as pets

I agree.

Why do poeple need to have a tiger as a pet?

Now strippers and exotic animals...that's a different story.

yeah - NOOOOOOO kidding.

The guy probably thought he had some special bond/connection with the animal that made it 'right'

... so special that the tiger wanted to kill him.

The only animals that are reliable are those that have been domesticated for thousands of years! Even they aren't perfect! They are always stories about dogs biting people and cats having to get shot by the police because they are so nuts (for real).

These other animals are INSANE and too unpredictable.

Agreed. However; I say if you have a dog or cat that bites I'd blame the owner over the animal. Most animials (even guard dogs like Matsiffs, Pitt Bulls, and Rotty's) won't bite unless you the person provoke it.

So sad how some ppl keep their animals

Siberian Tigers are the largest cats in the world even larger than lions. I guess the tiger mistook the guy bringing him dinner for the dinner itself.
