Today I was a tiger...

Let's keep a tiger-centric theme rolling with this leaping lady who knew when it was time to jump ship. The animal flees captivity, preferring the natural rhythms of the water to the gawking stares and claustrophobia of this floating vessel of civilization.

Incidentally, tigers are great swimmers. "Once, I was following a tiger in a motorboat," said Dr. Pranabes Sanyal, an Indian authority on the hero-beast Panthera tigris tigris. "Tiger was swimming faster."
