How much you wanna bet that if a farmer or private citizen saw one of these "dangerous" man-eaters on their property and shot it dead, instead of a cop doing it, they'd be charged with poaching and discharging a weapon in city limits.
Perhaps, but being a rural dweller, I can understand protecting grandkids, and livestock. Protecting human life comes first.

These protected endangered species like tigers and lions should not have been killed.
Police should be charged with animal cruelty.
These animals should be tranquilized and moved back to their zoo.

Perhaps they can place a tiger in your apartment or home, and see how it works out. My opinion is that no private person has any business having these animals away from their natural enviornment.

And a coward emerges! They need others to do their dirty work as they hide behind the vicious animals they harbor. They do not have "pets", they want weapons to attack their neighbors with. Cowardly sociopaths like this will always hide behind keyboards and vicious animals. They hate their fellow human beings. They will never be part of a civilized society and would love the sarcastic scenario I posted.
