An eyewitness has stepped forward, giving her account of what she supposedly saw on Christmas Day at the SF Zoo. Jennifer Miller, who visited the now infamous park with her husband and two small children, tells the Chronicle what she claims to have seen, just before the Tatiana mauled Carlos Sousa Jr. to death and injured Paul Dhaliwal and Kulbir Dhaliwal.
"The boys, especially the older one, were roaring at them. He was taunting them," the San Francisco woman said. "They were trying to get that lion's attention. ... The lion was bristling, so I just said, 'Come on, let's get out of here' because my kids were disturbed by it."
Miller also says that she recognized Sousa from his photograph, saying that he took no part in the rumored taunting that led to the tiger jumping out of her pen.
"He wasn't roaring. He wasn't taunting them," she recalled. "He kept looking at me apologetically like, 'I'm sorry, I know we are being stupid.' "
The boys' attorney, the Inside Edition-ready Mark Geragos, claims that Miller is stupid stinky pants lair face. He goes on to say that what the SF Zoo is doing is "a calculated attack on these victims ... when in actuality the zoo security didn't do what they should have been doing after the attack."
