Tiger Attack at SF Zoo

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Still reeling from the deadly Christmas Day tiger escape, officials said the San Francisco Zoo would reopen Jan. 3, despite a continuing criminal investigation and the shadow of possible fines and lawsuits.

The zoo has been closed since a 350-pound Siberian tiger escaped from its enclosure, killed a teenager and severely mauled two other visitors. It is becoming increasingly clear the tiger climbed over a wall that, at 12 feet 5 inches, was about 4 feet below the recommended minimum for U.S. zoos.

The tiger killed 17-year-old Carlos Sousa Jr. and mauled his friends Paul Dhaliwal, 19, and Kulbir Dhaliwal, 23.

The Dhaliwals are expected to make a full recovery.

The zoo could face heavy fines from regulators and even be stripped of its exhibitor license. It also could be hit with a huge lawsuit by the victims or their families and face criminal charges, depending on what the police investigation finds.
