Why kill the tiger?

This report from a few days ago got me thinking. When a dangerous zoo animal, like a tiger or a lion, kills a (negligent?) caretaker or escapes and kills another human, why is it (usually?) killed? I know that humans kill dogs that have bitten someone, but these animals are in a cage anyway, so I don't get it. They're in the cage to prevent them from killing humans, right? So what's the point? Not vengeance, surely?

So I found this tiger skin rug in a suitcase...

So I have this tiger skin rug... My uncle passed away and I found a bengal tiger rug in an old suitcase. http://www.flickr.com/photos/fleepy/tags/tiger/ I'd love to donate this tiger skin rug to a historical society/museum/conservation-minded cause. Any ideas? Located in NYC.

Tiger's QuickTime Misperforming on an iBook G3?

Ever since upgrading to QuickTime 7 and Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger), I've noticed that apparently what I think is the H.264 and H.267 codecs play very choppily on my machine. [more inside]
