Judge Tosses ‘Tiger Man’ Lawsuit

‘A man who sued the city for entering his apartment without a search warrant after he was mauled by his 450-pound pet Siberian tiger demonstrated a lot of nerve in taking the city to court, a judge said as he threw the lawsuit out. [..]

Police removed the 10-foot-long tiger, Ming, and an alligator, Al, from Yates’ East Harlem apartment. Yates served 3 1/2 months in jail after pleading guilty to reckless endangerment. [..]

Police determined that the situation was an emergency because there was a large tiger that had recently mauled a man roaming around inside an apartment, the judge said.’
