Medical causes ruled out in fatal B.C. tiger attack

Kamloops — A necropsy on a tiger that fatally mauled a woman near 100 Mile House in the B.C. Interior has found nothing unusual about the animal.

Marcie Moriarty, spokewoman for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, says there is no hint as to what caused the three-year-old tiger to attack 32-year-old Tanya Dumstrey-Soos of Williams Lake.

The results showed the tiger did not suffer from any medical problems.

The large cat was euthanized the day after the attack.

Ms. Dumstrey-Soos was the fiancé of the tiger’s owner, Kim Carlton, who also kept other exotic animals.

Two other adult tigers were later removed from Mr. Carlton’s property by the SPCA.
