Tiger Attack Settlement

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.
