Big Cat Attack, Part 19

Thankfully, the next tiger on the tour didn't look at me like I would make a nice aperitif. He did, however, seem to have it in for one of the keepers. He was actively stalking the guy, crouching down behind the available cover in his enclosure, pacing back and forth as the volunteer cleaned a nearby cage. Eventually the poor fellow got close enough, and this tiger took off like a flash in that direction. I'm not entirely sure he was just playing... Anyhow, the enclosures are pretty strong, so no harm was done. We were told that the same scenario plays out pretty much every day, but only between this tiger and that specific volunteer. Everybody has to have a hobby, I guess.
