• New Zealand killer tiger won’t be put down: zoo


    WELLINGTON: A tiger that mauled a New Zealand zookeeper to death will not be put down because the attack was “in line with his natural instincts,” zoo officials said Monday. Experienced zookeeper Samantha Kudewah died on Sunday morning when the tiger, a Sumatran male called Oz, attacked her at Hamilton Zoo, south of Auckland. The zoo’s decision comes after an online petition opposing euthanasia attracted more than 5,000 signatures and a separate “Help Save Oz” Facebook page gained more than 10,000 likes.
