Please don’t tease the tigers

You won’t see a goofy photo of Princess on lolcats.com with a “Can I haz cheezeburger?” caption – this 500-pound circus tiger likes her meat raw.

The tigers of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus practiced their routine for the cameras yesterday with trainer Daniel Raffo, standing on their hind legs and rolling over for the small crowd standing just 10 feet away.

“It’s just amazing to see them like this,” said TD Garden spokeswoman Courtney Mercier. “There was a lot of repetition, but it shows you how they learn to do all their tricks for each night of the show.”

The circus opened this year with a parade Tuesday and its first show Wednesday.
