Ligers are half-lion, half-tiger. Given their parentage, it should come as no surprise that these animals are deadly, even when their needs are handled by humans.
In 2008, a liger at Safari's Animal Sanctuary in Broken Arrow, Okla., killed a volunteer, 32-year-old Peter Getz. While Getz was feeding the animal, the liger mauled Getz, attacked his neck and torso. Sanctuary personnel were able to separate the liger from Getz, giving Getz a chance to get out of the cage. But the damage had been done.
