A tiger escaped the San Francisco zoo at closing time, killed one patron and critically injured two others.

They shot and killed the tiger. 

On one of the news stories, they panned to a sign at the zoo - there are more siberian tigers in zoos than in the wild. While I feel immense sympathy for the dead's family and for the injured, for some reason, that statement struck me as the most heart-wrenching. We live in a world where caged wild animals outnumber their wild wild counterparts. That's just sad.
