Irresponsible media reports!

Usually I will have nothing much to say against news reported in the media, but with the case of the news of 2 white tigers mauling the zoo cleaner, I feel that this time is too way overboard.

There's a distinct difference between a tourist falling down into the white tigers enclosure and being attacked by the white tigers, and a cleaner who climbed down to the white tiger enclosure, crossed the moat, took a broom and yellow bucket and waves the broom towards the tigers!

If the white tigers were provoked, their natural reaction is of course to attack. The white tigers are not at fault.

Why the editors do not have checks in place to verify the accuracy of the news report?? Even the facts are totally wrong. A tourist did not drop into the moat. The cleaner actually climbed into the moat and crossed it, and at the same time waving his broom.

It's this kind of irresponsible reporting that can get people, or in this case white tigers, killed for no apparent reason!
