Subject:

Clarification Of Sequence Of Events In Zoo Attack Incident

After the tiger attack at San Francisco Zoo on December 25, police initially reported that the animal had first attacked the 23-year old man and then attacked his 19 year-old brother. Further investigation determined that the sequence was reversed: the tiger first attacked the 19-year-old brother, then their 17-year-old companion, who died from his wounds, then the 23-year-old. The 23-year-old brother called 9-1-1 to request assistance prior to his being attacked.
