Exotic Animal Incident Report

Reported: Dec 01, 2005
Location: Foley, Alabama

Animal: Bengal Tiger
Animal Disposition: dead

Facility Type: Non-accredited Zoo
Facility Name: Kids Country Zoo

Category: Animal Death by human

Summary: A healthy 2-year-old Bengal tiger at the Kids Country Zoo was euthanized and stuffed and mounted for display at the zoo. Several individuals offered to take the tiger rather than see it put down, including Tiger Haven in Tennessee, Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, and a facility in Texas, but the zoo's owner said the tiger was dangerous and opted to administer a lethal injection of medication instead. The Baldwin County District Attorney launched an investigation.
