The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Opinion -

ICYMI, Wildlife Re­serves Sin­ga­pore put down an ex­tremely rare white tiger this week. Omar, who would have turned 18 in Septem­ber (88 in hu­man years), be­came in­fa­mous af­ter a Sin­ga­pore Zoo worker from Malaysia jumped into his en­clo­sure in a sui­cide at­tempt and was mauled to death by the tiger back in 2008. Omar had suf­fered from skin can­cer and joint de­gen­er­a­tion over the last three years and his health had de­te­ri­o­rated to a point where eu­thana­sia was in­evitable. (Search: white tiger)
