Lest you think this couple were married by a wild tiger who’d somehow gotten ordained online, this photobombing feline is safely behind glass. Groom Andrew Madgwick and his bride Karma posed for wedding photos at the Paigton Zoo in Devon, England, and happened to snap a photo the very second the zoo’s Sumatran tiger Banda walked into the shot. “One of the tigers was sunbathing on the ledge when Karma shook her dress and caught its attention,” said Vicki Boulter, one of the couple’s photographers. “All of a sudden it came bounding over and right into the shot. He posed for a split second and walked away. Karma and Andrew didn’t realize the tiger had come so close. But they were delighted when they saw the photo.” [Express]

Last September, we sat at our desks, horrified but intrigued, to hear that a 25-year-old man had jumped off a monorail in the Bronx Zoo into the tiger cage. I mean, I might joke about stuffing baby pandas into my purse, but I’m not really that crazy.

You’re having a case of the Mondays? Us too. Let’s not even talk about the viperous crapitude that is the MTA. Instead, let’s remedy our overall Monday sourness with a pic of this just-born baby Sumatran tiger cub. How rad is he? I could look into those baby blues all day.
Born at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington, this little guy is just five weeks old. [Zooborns]
Note to the Yalta zoo that recently celebrated the birth of four rare white tiger cubs. Maybe you should take a cue from the guys that set up the Shiba Inu 24-hour cam and set up a similar arrangement so that I know every single thing these babies do. Also I love how the British news reporter says “Albeeno” white tiger.
