Tiger Attacks Little Boy on Opening Day of County Fair
Summary: 

A white tiger clawed the head of a four-year old boy at the Saratoga County Fair.  The boy was taking a photo with a baby kangaroo, and the tiger's owner believed the tiger was pawing to try and see the small animal in the boy's lap.  The tiger was allowed to stay at the fair since it did not act out of hostility and its cage was moved a farther distance from the public.
