i am not a stuffed tiger.

"Don't harm the cat."

Wonderful quotes and comments about the recent tiger attack can be found in this AP story:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The tiger that injured Roy Horn of the duo "Siegfried & Roy" had been trying to help the illusionist after he slipped and accidentally harmed him by using too much force, says Horn's partner, Siegfried Fischbacher.


The whole thing is just so tragically surreal... or is that surrealistically tragic? Whatever the case, it's equal parts hilariously absurd and heart-breakingly sad to me.
the whole situation -- living with tigers and doing weird magic -- seemed like an accident waiting to happen. Yet the attack, in the face of the human devotion to the tiger qualifies for the tragic and heartbreaking.
