14Oh Man, The Tiger's Waking Up!
One former Zoo employee says that he has "lots of stories," but the one that pops into his mind is about a tiger. It's a good one too. He says, "We were transporting a sedated tiger to the veterinary clinic in the back of a van. During the transport, the
'sedated' tiger raised his head, placed his mouth around a keeper's lower leg, then fell back asleep. A good solid 20 seconds of 'did that just f**king happen?' before the vets pushed another bump of propofol to keep him down until we got him onto the anesthesia machine." Oh, my goodness. Not many people have had a tigers mouth around their leg and not ended up being lunch.
