The Zoologist’s Favourite Tiger

tiger, Jae Jae; 100 words about escaped zoo tigers and lions
That’s Jae Jae, not Cinta, actually (c) 2014, Sonya

‘Body, throat ripped out. Another one, many others. Bite marks from tigers and lions. Have they ganged up? They must have, neither group could have taken out this many soldiers on their own. Remarkable development.’

I stop recording. They didn’t sent me to Regent’s Park for research – I set the big cats free when the water rose, I have to get them back into their enclosures again.

I didn’t think they’d work together.

A low growl in the tall grass – Cinta. But when she shows her face, I know the stun gun isn’t going to cut it, despite my modifications.

    1. I used to live near Regent’s Park and would often hear the lions roar on my way home from work. I always wondered what would happen to the animals in case of a city-wide catastrophe… Thanks, Lynn 🙂

      1. I remember going to Chester Zoo for a wedding once and hearing the lions roar – it’s a primal sound, and we’re hardwired to feel like running to cover when we hear it. Well I am, anyway 🙂 Didn’t the residents of Berlin eat all the zoo animals in WWII when food was so drastically short? Imagine hippo burger for tea.
