San Francisco Denies Claims Filed by Tiger Attack Victims

May 12, 2008

San Francisco officials say an investigation has found the city not liable for injuries suffered by two brothers attacked by an escaped zoo tiger.

In a letter released Friday, May 9, 2008, City Attorney Dennis Herrera denies claims filed by Kulbir and Paul Dhaliwal. A Siberian tiger mauled the men and killed their 17-year-old friend on Christmas Day.

Herrera says the claims should be referred the San Francisco Zoological Society, which manages the zoo, and to the society’s insurance company.

The claims are a precursor to a lawsuit. The Dhaliwals’ attorney says he expects to file one soon.
