Holy crap. I’m pretty sure the fence separating the tigers from the humans does absolutely nothing because these tigers can easily out jump it. Look at them gracefully fly in the air and snatch the meat like a wide receiver catching a touchdown pass. These beasts are basically basically comic book superhero versions of regular cats.
