Don't Miss this One

Dec 25, 2007 was a mild and pleasant day in San Fransisco. However the calmness of the beautiful Christmas Day was shattered in San Fransisco zoo when a Siberian Tigress, Tatiana, escaped her enclosure to maul two young men and kill another. In the end she too was shot by officials. What provoked the attack and how did the big cat manage to scale the high walls of her grotto - National Geographic Channel is doing a special program on this - it premieres this Sunday, August 10, at 10 pm...don't forget to watch it...I'll do a write up on it too in the coming days...
