[b]Tigers Maul S.African Robber After Botched Heist[/b] Mon Mar 11,10:42 AM ET JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A thief escaping from a botched robbery at a game sanctuary near Johannesburg made a fatal mistake when he climbed a high fence and found himself in the tigers' den, police said Monday. "They grabbed him and first played with him. He died of a broken neck and a fractured skull," police spokeswoman Milica Bezuidenhout told Reuters. The body was removed after the tigers, a male and a female, had been sedated, she said. The 28-year-old victim, a South African, and an accomplice had held up the gate guard at the Rhino and Lion Reserve at Krugersdorp, west of Johannesburg, Saturday, but fled when staff and visitors became suspicious and chased them. The accomplice and the driver of the getaway car were arrested and were to appear in court later Monday, Bezuidenhout said.

I downloaded a sick video the other day of some tourist being attacked by Lions and eaten while people sat in their cars. Still makes me sick to think about it.

They refer to the thief who got eaten as the victim!

I just hope the tigers don't get AIDS from eating tainted meat.

It's just too bad that kind of poetic justice isn't served to all scumbags. But it's great to hear nontheless! Oh, and [b]Ban the Tigers! It's for the children![/b]

[b]Q:[/b] WTF was he trying to steal? [b]A:[/b] I think the guy wanted to be like that Jeff Propst dude from "Survivor". He wanted a tiger tooth to wear around his neck. Sure got it alright!
