Man Mauled By Tiger

| No Comments

A man who leaped into the tiger den at the Bronx Zoo on Friday is in stable condition after being mauled by the animal, the LA Times reports.
David Villalobos, 25, was riding in a train which takes visitors on a tour of the grounds when he jumped off, clearing a 16-foot-high fence, and landed in the den.
He was alone with the tiger for about 10 minutes before being rescued by zoo officials, USA Today said.
Villalobos suffered several punctures and various injuries during the incident, and told police that he wanted to be "one with the tiger," according to reports.
The man was taken to the hospital and charged with trespassing.
