News The Real Danger of Drugs and Alcohol: Tiger Maulings
posted by June 4 at 14:56 PMon
The teenager killed during the Christmas Day tiger mauling at the San Francisco Zoo had alcohol and marijuana in his bloodstream, according to a toxicology report released Tuesday.
Besides suffering many punctures and scratches to his head, neck, and chest, the boy had a fractured skull and spine. The report says his jugular vein had been cut.
Sousa was with Paul and Kulbir Dhaliwal at the San Francisco Zoo on Dec. 25 when a Siberian tiger escaped from an enclosure and attacked the three of them. The two brothers were also injured during the mauling.
We all owe a debt to those intrepid journalists at CBS news who’ve finally exposed marijuana as the dangerous drug that it is. If I hadn’t known I was at risk of being mauled by a tiger, I might’ve spent another weekend in my living room getting high and watching Mama’s Family reruns on TV, completely unaware that a tiger might be lurking somewhere nearby, ready to pounce.
I think it’s time to get serious about the war on drugs. America needs to hire itself a few good tigers.
