I hope PETA can stay out of this ordeal as it really has little to do with them. They should only be concerned if the Tiger was hurt. I dont know why PETA wants an investigation seeing as they should be happy about the incident as "the animal" got the upper hand.(no pun intended)
This was simply keeper error, the girl should have known better than to stick her fingers in the cage with a tiger or any animal capable of biting her for that matter. She may have lost a pinky finger ( i dont use mine for all that much come to think of it.) She has gained one heck of a story to tell people though. Best of luck to Luray Zoo.
