According to the zoo, there are less than 250 Malayan tigers in existence, four of which remain at the Palm Beach Zoo, including the tiger that killed Konwiser. The zoo stated via Facebook and news conference that the tiger, subdued by tranquilizers, wasn’t in danger and will remain at the zoo.
“There has never been blame, nor will there ever be blame assigned to the wild Malayan tiger involved in this deadly incident,” zoo spokeswoman Naki Carter said.
The death remains under investigation by several agencies.
