The San Francisco Zoo agreed Thursday to settle its lawsuit against the two brothers who survived the fatal attack by an escaped tiger on Christmas Day 2007 for $900,000.
I really did not follow this accident very closely. I remember the allegations that I don’t think were ever proven that the victims taunted the tiger before it jumped out of its enclosure. But I bet it happened just like that.
Again, from a distance, this case has a “public relations nightmare turned into overpaying for the case” flavor to it.
