One very lucky dog that the zoo employees thought so quickly to help him.

I have got to give the zoo employees a lot of credit for the way they handled the situation. They used air horns and fireworks to distract the cat. Quick thinking! That's also one lucky dog to be alive.

I am just happy the dog survived. Put up a higher fence.

What's up with a four foot fence? Sounds way dangerous for people or pets.

What a lucky dog! I can't imagine what it felt like. Maybe once it gets home it will be more likely to stay.
Can you imagine the tiger just hanging out when out the sky jumps this animal that it has never seen. It was just protecting it's area.

I agree with Lily about having your dogs micro-chipped. What an experience all the way around.

Another example of why micro-chipping dogs is very helpful. Unless, that is, the dog was abandoned. Poor critter, being chased by people and then attacked by a tiger. Hopefully he'll find a good home if his people don't turn up. And if they do turn up, I hope they have to pay his medical bills.

Well this dog had an experience he will never forget! What a wild ride...chase.

But poor dog, a stray and of course frightened by being chased. Then up over the fence into the lion's den! I imagine the lion could have immediately killed the dog. Hopefully, she was "domesticated" enough not to immediately go for the jugular kill.

What a lucky pooch to get away without being seriously hurt. I'm sure it didn't know what to think of the huge cat that grabbed it!

Was the dog acting on a dare from his friends ("it's only a big cat")? I'm glad he's ok though.

I am glad the dog is okay but why would an owner have a collar on a dog without any identification?

Obviously the dog was disoriented or scared, and probably hungry. I'm glad to hear she's doing well know, and will hopefully find a good home.

Hmmm. Bite wounds on the neck sounds like hunting experience wasn't really needed, instinct took over for the cat.

Glad the dog is fine, but once again, dog without tags or microchip. If they find the owners, fine them for the cost of the vet bills and place the dog with people that know how to properly care for a dog. Tags and microchips are a necessity nowadays.

This is one mighty (and lucky) dog. The tiger was probably just as surprised to see a dog swimming his moat and coming into his territory, as the pooch was to see this big big pussy cat. Hope the dog finds a fine loving home.

Lucky for the dog the tiger didn't have hunting experience. I hope the owner takes better care after the dog is returned.

They don't need to try to find the owner. He apparently is not too concerned about this dog, or it wouldn't have been wandering loose. Turn the dog over to the humane society, and let them find a caring home for it.
