That beautiful tiger is not only hugging the man, but has his arm in its mouth. Several years ago, at the zoo in Portland, OR, I jumped the 3 ft. fence and played “hide & seek” with a young tiger for about 15 minutes, (stupid, I know, but we were having fun!), but the last time she pulled her “BOO”, she was on her hind legs, and I felt extremely small and totally in awe of not only her beauty, but her size and power. Had the cage not been there, I know that in one swat, and bite, I’d have beeen her lunch & dinner! I still love and respect them, and with age, I’ve learned my place.
Nice kitty ….
Hey, Liz. I lived in Portland for a year & went to the zoo on several occassions. But that has been at least 20 yrs. ago!
