Tiger gets meat-laced snowman to munch


Zoos try everything to attract people’s attention.

A 14-year-old Amur tiger at the Columbus Zoo got a frozen treat when staff built her a snowman layered with meat.

Mara is the oldest tiger at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, but she is still very active and playful, the zoo said in a social media post.

“When she’s not playing in the snow, Mara enjoys tearing up boxes and paper,” the zoo said.
