DM – A tiger killed its trainer during a circus performance in northern Mexico, it emerged today. Footage posted on YouTube purportedly shows the trainer, American Alexander Crispin circling two tigers during his act for Circo Suarez in Sonora state. One of the animals then lunges towards the 35-year-old and pulls him to the ground. Mexican news agency Notimex reported Mr Crispin suffered neck injuries from bites and scratches on Saturday. He was taken by ambulance to the Red Cross hospital Huatabampo, Sonora where he died while receiving medical care, as a result of hypovolemic shock.


Look it’s never good when someone dies, unless they’re a bad person like a rapist or something and then who cares? This guy wasn’t a rapist so it’s obviously kinda tragic. But at the same time is it really? It’s very difficult for me to have sympathy for people who cage and exploit on of the planet’s most ferocious killers and then have something bad happen to them. Probably should have seen this coming. Tigers aren’t supposed to be a circus show dude. That’s not how nature drew it up. I mean go ahead and do your thing but when you get mauled to death it’s nobody’s fault but your own. Think a tiger gives a fuck about you? Nah. That thing just wants to be in a huge field hunting antelope, not giving paw in a cage. So sorry you died but not really.
