    (June 27, 2003-December 25, 2007)
    Born in Denver, Colorado
    350-pound Siberian tiger born at the Denver Zoo
    On loan to the San Francisco Zoo since December 16, 2005 to mate with a male tiger
    Escaped from her enclosure just before closing time Christmas Day
    Mauled to death 17-year-old Carlos Sousa, Jr. and injured two brothers who suffered bite wounds and lacerations
    Shot to death by the San Francisco police at age 4
    Due to her escape all zoos will need to reassess their safety measures.
    This gives the anti-zoo activists fodder for why zoos should be shut down.
    She had previously wounded a zookeeper that was feeding her improperly, costing the zoo an $18,000 fine and the zookeeper a portion of her right arm (December 23, 2006).
    A spokesman trying to put the incident in perspective stated, 'It's much safer going to a zoo than getting in your car and going down the driveway.'
    Her species is an endangered one.
    She wasn't destroyed after the zookeeper attack because she was acting instinctively and 'you can take the animal out of the wild - you can't take the wild out of the animal.'
    The police had no other choice than to open fire as she dropped her third victim and headed toward them.
    The incident should stir debate about visitor safety at zoos and habitat of the animals on exhibit.
    Both she and her teen victim died on Christmas Day.
