Bengal TigerMexico — Video footage has been released reportedly showing a Bengal tiger killing its trainer in front of an audience during a circus performance in northern Mexico.

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.

    “And for my next act, we will see how fast we can clear this here tent.”

  • NY_Mommy

    I agree with you 100% Morbid. It really pisses me off when this happens and then they kill the animal for acting like an animal. People are so fucking stupid.

  • Sam

    A Bengal tiger, American trainer, Mexican circus… can we class this as a hate crime?

  • brandi

    awwwww! i was sooooooo gonna say that! still equally funny tho…..

  • brandi

    Kill the tiger for what? They are not made for the circus. If your gonna force them there then the consequences are on you when the poor thing goes ape shit. I’m sure they beat that tiger on a basis, and he didn’t want to do your silly games anymore. dumb fucks!

  • newstarshipsmell

    LOL! Pantsed by a tiger!

  • So sad for those animals. I agree, if you work with wild animals in a circus, you sign up for this. It is not okay to keep and “train” these animals like this.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Being a “wild animal” tamer is an oxymoron. It is a difficult profession and when it fails, it does so badly. I have no doubt the animal was destroyed.

  • JohnQknowitall

    hmmmm hell just got hotter again… hope you have an ac with you when…

  • Kasie K

    Ape shit. I saw what ya did there

  • Kasie K

    Should have shot the trainer, put him outta misery.

  • brandi

    glad someone caught it… poor attempt on my part… i’m usually good at these things but sam took my joke 🙁 maybe next time

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    On the bright side, Mexican unemployment numbers are going down as legacy jobs suddenly become available.

  • daMonBrooks

    Being a tame animal Tamer is an oxymoron, that said, Its just a bad idea to bully animals that can easily eat you.

  • newstarshipsmell
  • Anyone else notice the Rocky IV training montage music in the background.

  • Buffettgirl

    Maybe they’ll feed Fluffy next time before the show instead of waiting…

  • brandi

    That’s one to tell the grand kids! oh wait……he’s dead……rightttt……

  • xoodloverx

    while i don’t agree with killing the tiger just because it acted like a tiger, we don’t know why it was killed. maybe they had to kill it to stop it from attacking the “trainer”.

  • tkaz

    There would be much bigger uproar if it were a Mexican Tiger killing a Bengal Trainer in an American Circus…..
    ….what’s a Bengal Trainer? Sounds like a sneaker!

  • Andyman

    I think the job I’d like less than Bengal Tiger trainer is Bengal Tiger security guard. No fucking way I’m running in there to change his focus from gnawing on trainer dude’s neck and face to mine. Talk about occupational hazard. Holy shit.

  • Buffettgirl

    A really ferocious one…

  • newstarshipsmell

    Shit man, I think my legs would pick an opportune moment to cramp the fuck up.

  • newstarshipsmell

    They actually do that in China – starve the tigers before letting prey loose around them for spectators to watch.

  • Suzy Sears

    I’ve worked with tigers in a zoo setting. Some are pretty calm some aren’t just like humans. When I hear about an animal of any kind killing a human my first thought is what was that person doing that caused this? This sounds like an oops I broke it situation. The tiger sounds like he was actually playing with the guy, any one with a pet cat would see what I mean only this cat was WAY bigger than fluffy

  • Suzy Sears

    Lol me first !!

  • Buffettgirl

    That’s truly horrifying! And I’ll bet they have “no idea what happened” when shit goes wrong too… Damn people are ignorant and cruel…

  • come_and_see

    That Tiger gone ate him.

  • Bengal tiger? American trainer? Mexican circus? Did this happen right after a UN meeting?

  • newstarshipsmell

    Alex learned the hard way that when you’re dealing with tigers, you gotta keep frosty and not flake out.

  • glitterpuss

    Another case of let’s blame the animal for behaving like an animal, then react with less reasoning than the animal and kill it. And we’re supposed to be the most intelligent species.

  • Suzy Sears

    I can’t agree with you more!people suck ass!they as a group are cruel heartless bunch. Thank God for us weirdos huh rofl . My fav sayings is ” the more I know people the better. I like my dog

  • LeaveMeBe

    That is the smartest tiger I’ve ever heard of. Pantsed him so he could run then CHOMP!

  • Jus Dewit

    In total agreement, Morbid. Play with fire, get burned. Play with tiger, get mauled.

  • lespacino

    Score one for the big cats! I can’t help but get the warm fuzzies when a circus animal decides it’s had enough of the humans’ shit.

  • lespacino

    I think the tiger did…

  • I don’t know, the tiger looks so chilled while mauling the shit out of the guy lol

  • not to forget,.Bengal tiger security guard with just a stick hahaha

  • It’s 2013 time to ban all circus performances considered cruelty to the circus animals. The Bengal Tiger deserves to be free instead of beating a poor animal into submission. Do your part don’t go to the circus.

  • It’s a new year 2013 time to ban all circus performances by animals which is considered cruelty to animals. The Bengal Tiger deserves to be free or living in a sanctuary where instead of performing the tiger can climb a tree or lounge around in the green grass. Circus animals are beaten into submission finally this poor tiger snapped. Do your part don’t go to the circus.

  • Gee

    For being the smartest species on the planet we sure do the dumbest thing animals. I hate circuses and think they should be banned. I have no sympathy for the dead man!

  • newstarshipsmell

    But I love the clowns…

  • Eye of the Tiger would’ve been more appropriate than Hearts on Fire

  • Abroad

    Thank you for giving me an opportunity to google the word “hypovolemic”, thus extending my vocabulary.

  • G.I.R.L.

    From disturbing murder to toilet humor; thanks Morbid for being versatile. 🙂

  • JustBrowsingLife

    I had my finger about to call the INS but didn’t know which country code to dial.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    Almost beats the gun toting dogs i have seen here at DD.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    Kofi Annon just having a few friends for lunch.

  • onlyme356

    Gee, I wonder why it’s a bad idea to run circles around a tiger. It wouldn’t have anything to do with circling your prey?

  • Fuck this guy, I’m glad he got killed. Anyone who abuses wild animals (animals in general), especially for acts in these cruel circuses deserves a slow, painful death. And a Mexican circus? I can’t even imagine the torture they subject the animals to. R.I.P. tiger

  • Minerva

    A tiger does what a tiger is born to do and humans kill it for following its instincts.

    I read way worse things people do to each other every day on this site and they don’t get “destroyed”.
