These people have seriously lost their minds. I accept the predators will be predators, but humans have brains that allow us to fashion weapons so that we don’t have to be prey; a good thing when you don’t have sharp claws or deadly canines, and can’t run all that fast.
Defending yourself against a predator is as basic a function of being a living creature as you can get. These people have not only lost touch with what it means to be human, but also what it means to be part of nature. I don’t blame the tiger; it was just being a tiger, but the police officer who shot the tiger was just being a human. It was a profound natural act these people don’t seem to understand.
