Man Survives Leap Into Tiger Pen at Mexico City Zoo

A man who jumped into a tiger pen at a Mexico City zoo on Wednesday escaped with two bites on his arm after zoo personnel pulled him to safety, officials said.

According to officials at the Chapultepec Park zoo, the man jumped over a retaining wall at the tiger exhibit and stood face-to-face with a male Bengal tiger. The tiger then tried to "play" with the man, biting him twice on the arm, the officials said.

Zoo officials said the incident appeared to be a suicide attempt.

Looks like that tiger needs more sunlight too. Quite a lackluster performance on his part.
