    Tiger in "love triangle" kills mate at Texas zoo

    EL PASO, Texas (Reuters) - A female tiger has killed her mate at a West Texas zoo, authorities said on Friday, in a rare attack that came after months of simmering jealousy in a feline love triangle.
    Three-year-old Malayan tiger Seri killed 6-year-old Wzui at about 4 p.m. on Thursday in an enclosure at El Paso Zoo, zoo spokeswoman Karla Martinez said on Friday,
    As soon as the incident was reported, zookeepers closed the tiger exhibit and veterinary staff were called. They examined Wzui, and found he was dead.
    "Tragic incidents such as this are not unheard of but we don't consider this common," zoo Director Steve Marshall said. Marshall described the deceased tiger as very down to earth and loving and said it would "be greatly missed."
    Malayan tigers are a critically endangered species, with just 500 or so of the animals remaining in the wilds of Thailand and Malaysia, according to the World Wide Fund For Nature.
    Both Seri and Wzui were on loan from other zoos as part of the American Zoo Association's Species Survival Plan to aid in their conservation through captive breeding.
    Marshall said keepers had not observed any signs of aggression leading up to the attack, and that the two cats had been seen playing affectionately at the exhibit earlier in the day.
    However, in June, zoo authorities reported what they called a "tiger love triangle" between Seri, Wzui and a 15-year-old female called Meli, who was transferred to El Paso from a zoo in Fresno, California, in 2001.

    He was a handsome devil, but he done her wrong. He had it coming.

    He was a big guy - she must have been really pissed to take him down.

    It must've been something like this...but on a much larger scale with more dire consequences:

    So were they still all in the same area when the killing took place?

    Did they seperate the 3 when they thought something was going on?

    Also, how can a tiger be described posthumously as down to earth and loving? Did he refuse to use special silverware to eat the gazelle meat, because it was snobbish and off-putting? Drink instant coffee instead of filtered??
    Tiene razon, y gracias por su opinion. Now go fuck yourself.

    He wore his Tiger baseball cap to the side, slapped people on the back and said, "hey, y'all!" a lot.
