The video was shot during an act for Circo Suarez in Sonora state. In it you can see as U.S. citizen Alexander Crispin, 35, circles two tigers during his act. One of the tigers lunges towards Crispin, then pulls down Crispin’s pants causing him to fall to the ground.
What follows is the tiger pinning Crispin to the ground as it claws and chews his face and neck area. As spectators flee the circus tent, circus employees begin beating the tiger in an effort to free Crispin.
No offical word on how they finally got the tiger to let go of Crispin, but some commenters on the Youtube video angrily stated that the tiger was killed. Crispin was rushed to Red Cross hospital Huatabampo, Sonora where he died as a result of hypovolemic shock.
I know this guy died a horrible death, as you can see below, but I just have a hard time feeling sorry for him or anyone who is killed doing that kind of work. To me, it’s what should happen whenever anyone attempts to force a Bengal tiger to do stupid tricks.
