Bowie, the 11-year-old Bengal tiger, in his new habitat at Keepers of the Wild last week. During Monday's thunderstorm, Bowie attacked owner and founder of the animal sanctuary Jonathan Kraft, leaving Kraft with multiple wounds and two broken bones. "My accident with Bowie was my fault. I was concerned for his welfare and did not stay focused on him," Kraft said in a press release Wednesday. (Photo provided by Keepers of the Wild)

Got something on your mind? Tell us about it in 40 words or less. If your rant or rave is about a specific story, please mention the headline.

Pat Buchanan – Is Bernie stealing Trump’s no more wars position: Pat has been hawking the same conservative pap since I was a kid! I hope people reading his column realize these are his opinions, and not facts. Bernie has always been against war. Pat’s washed up ideas must come cheap.

Keepers of the Wild owner suffered two broken bones and ‘multiple wounds’ in Monday’s tiger incident: Still thinking about what safety protocol was breached, perhaps it was that two staff members are supposed to be involved when around the animals. This also may have been Bowie’s first experience with changing gates during storms. Speedy recovery, Jonathan.
