“I want to be one with the tiger”
Said the man, of his dangerous feat;
The tiger had similar wishes, but knew
That the truth is, you are what you eat.
So it seems David Villalobos was not trying to commit suicide, when he jumped into the tiger exhibit at the Bronx Zoo. He just “wanted to be one with the tiger“, he says.
David Villalobos also claimed that despite his serious injuries, he was able to pet the tiger before zookeepers came to his rescue, said New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne.
So I’m guessing it was all worth it.
