The tiger that got loose was fatally shot while it was attacking a patron, said San Francisco Fire Department spokesman Lt. Ken Smith.

The attack happened shortly after the zoo's 5 p.m. closing time at a cafe on the east end of the zoo, officials said. The tiger cages are located near the center of the zoo.

The condition of the two injured patrons was not immediately known. It was also not clear how the tiger escaped.

Let me get all vegantastic for a minute and say that wild animals should be left in the wild, and we should preserve the wild instead of paving over it.

People should satisfy their curiosity about wild animals through nature documentaries, not through putting beautiful and magnificent creatures in cages for the yokels to gawk at.
