Zoo Jumper Wanted to be ‘One With Tiger’

David Villalobos, the man who jumped into the tiger den at the Bronx Zoo, was charged with trespassing late Saturday. Villalobos explained to police that “everyone has a reason for what they do in life,” and he just “wanted to be one with the tiger.” Understandably, the 11-year-old feline did not understand Villalobos’s innocent intentions when he leapt from the zoo’s train and into the tiger’s den Friday. The now infamous jumper was left with puncture wounds all over his body, along with a broken arm and leg from the fall.
