Tigers Unleashed on Fatal Attractions
Nov 18 at 9 PM EST watch the premier of Animal Planet's Fatal Attractions - Tigers Unleashed! On a compound in Florida one man is killed and another fights for his life when a tiger breaks free and attacks. Carole Baskin is interviewed and TJ and Bella star in the show. I think Alex and Modnic may have had a cameo role as well, but need to watch it again to see. In Kansas, a young and innocent girl lies broken and dead when her dream photo shoot with a tiger goes badly wrong.
