Las Vegas once boasted the daring duo of Siegfried & Roy and their tiger. Until one day the tiger bit Roy and the show came to an end. The shock that a wild animal just might bite the hand that feeds it is not limited to the Las Vegas stage. A woman who reached into the cage of her brother-in-law’s pet raccoon to feed it some meatloaf, and was bit by the animal, proceeded to sue her brother-in-law for all he was worth. And when the jury essentially split the difference and found her 40% at fault, she went the extra mile and appealed the verdict. The appellate judges had none of it.
One does wonder… was the meatloaf that bad?
