Tiger dies at Busch Gardens after altercation with her brother.
Busch Gardens on Tuesday announced the death of Bala, a 13-year old Bengal tiger who “incurred a major injury from an atypical interaction with her brother,” according to the park.
“Her wounds were too great and she was humanely euthanized,” a park statement said. “A full necropsy is underway and the team will know more about her passing once test results have been received.”
US Busch Gardens zoo failed to create a safe environment for a tiger, that got into a zoo-typical fight with another tiger, this time her brother.
The result: severe wounds.
The zoo decided to euthanize her, in a state where euthanisation of humans is forbidden.
