    London Zoo workers and visitors were devastated Friday after popular Sumatran tiger Melati was killed by a new male picked to be her mate. Melati, 10, was fatally mauled when she was introduced to the 7-year-old male, Asim, who had been brought to the zoo just 10 days ago from a Danish Safari Park, the BBC reported.

    The two spent days within sight of each other but in separate adjacent enclosures so they could get used to each other. They had shown “obvious positive signs,” and zookeepers believed the time was right to introduce the animals, said a statement by the zoo.

    The big cats were initially cautious but the meeting quickly became aggressive.

    “Zoo staff immediately implemented their prepared response, using loud noises, flares and alarms to try and distract the pair, but Asim had already overpowered Melati,” the zoo statement said.

    “Zookeepers were eventually able to secure Asim in a separate paddock so that they could safely get to Melati where our vets confirmed that she had sadly died.”

    As with “all big cats, introductions, however carefully planned, are always considered to be high risk,” the zoo said.

    Is there something wrong with me that I find this heartbreaking,

    yet the idea of homeless people freezing to death overnight where I live makes me feel pretty much nothing at all?

    When a bitch eats the last gazelle liver without asking, then a bitch gets stuck.

    Morons! Why didn’t they have a tranquilizer dart ready? In the wild there would be a male lion to protect her. Alone in a cage she was a sitting duck.

    You're used to knowing that Homeless people die. You have to build a protective layer to not give a fuck or else you'd be regulary depressed.
