Alright, I will say it just once so you know that I am totally on the side of the tigers not the humans but I must say that someone made a big mistake really big time. Just read today that at the London Zoo a rare Sumatran tiger was to be mated. The tigress arrived and no one can say what happened but the mister mauled his would be mate to death. Now I read this and first I was shocked then I start to get angry and it is anger at the humans. You can never know what might happen when you introduce two tigers to each other. There should have been precautions taken and a way to quickly separate them if all things did not work out. Did they think it would be love at first sight? When will humans learn? The second story is even more tragic since it involved a beautiful four-year-old girl who had autism. The family swears up and down that she was always taken care of and always made sure the girl was fine. Apparently, she had a very small bedroom with two radiators and the mother left the window open a bit to let in air. The mother is not a well woman with back pains and such and she went to lie down. She does say that two relatives were left to watch the girl. Well, they did not do their job when the girl was able to open up the window further and tumble out of it to her death. You know this is something I will never understand and the mother says it was a small mistake. I would hate to think what a big mistake would be to her. I grew up from babyhood to toddler to child living with my parents in apartments. Somehow our apartments were always on the fifth floor. I am here to write and to live because I survived. Of course, I survived I was looked after normally. I cannot understand how these tragedies happen and then everyone goes oh, my, that is what happens when you live in apartments. That is not what should happen if the child has proper guidance. It just breaks my heart to read that this girl was going to have her fourth birthday party on Sunday, that was yesterday and now the family has a funeral to go to. Let me hear from you on the tigers and on the little girl.

These are both huge and unnecessary tragedies. They should have caged the tigers separately to see if they got used to each other. The male tiger was protecting his territory. As for that mother, some people don’t deserve to have children. My grandkids grew up in the city, and their parents were vigilant and the windows were such that the kids couldn’t open them.

Her word in the article it was a small mistake and I shuddered about this mom @sofssu besides if two relatives were left to look after her and the girl being with autism they should have been in the same room with her

I thought at first the little girl was mauled by the animal but falling out of the window wouldn't be much better. Did it say what floor they were on? If it was too warm in the room I don't know whether one of the radiators could have been turned off or down but the window should have been closed. It's unfortunate about the animal and I hope the zoo had to pay for their error otherwise they may not learn from their mistake.
