Some Tiger Attacks Are More Equal Than Others
Sherman Oaks, California
On Christmas Day 2007, a tiger at the San Francisco Zoo escaped its pen, killing a bystander and mauling two others. The media coverage was relentless.
Earlier this week, three rare white tigers (one pictured above) killed a Malaysian cleaner who had jumped into their pen at the Singapore Zoo -- and the attack is on videotape. But the U.S. media does not care.
Tiger attack + Americans = Fascinating.
Tiger attack + Asians = Boring.
