Tiga Tahun, a female Malayan tiger owned by Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium, was killed by a male tiger at the San Diego Zoo after the animals were introduced for breeding purposes.
The male unexpectedly turned violent and attacked the female, which had never been in Omaha despite the zoo's ownership.
