In 2015, Hati was moved to the Palm Beach Zoo to mate with Berapi, a female who had previously given birth, according to a news release from the zoo.

On the way to the zoo from her suburban West Palm Beach home, Scanlon learned that Hati, a 350-pound Malayan tiger responsible for the death of a zoo employee this past year, had died Thursday night after surgery.

Nill, the Zoo's associate curator, explained in a statement that on Thursday, staffers noticed "an abnormal bulge" in Hait's abdomen and monitored it throughout the day. Zoo staff said it didn't appear Hati had more damage, but during recovery after Thursday's surgery, the tiger stopped breathing and could not be revived. This was Hati's second surgery for abdominal issues, with the previous occurring nine days before.

Knowiser, whose husband of ten years, Jeremy, also worked as a keeper at the zoo, was rushed to a hospital but later died after suffering a severe bite to her neck.

But, as I have practiced with him quite a bit, maybe I am better prepared than if I would have never hit with him before". The 30-year-old Haase, ranked 52nd in the world, improved to 5-0 against 36th-ranked Schwartzman in his career.

The Malayan tiger is a smaller-sized subspecies of tiger, found throughout Malaysia and parts of Thailand. He arrived at Zoo Miami in 2004 as part of that breeding initiative, Zoo Miami spokesman Ron Magill told the Sun Sentinel a year ago. The zoo said Berapi had given birth to three stillborn tiger cubs. The zoo has never acknowledged that Hati killed the zookeeper.

"He was a very unsafe animal, like any tiger", he said. He was a tiger, a typical male tiger. In a statement, it said it "was known, like all tigers, to pose a serious threat to humans". The zoo had declined to identify the tiger behind the mauling, saying the tiger had received death threats after the attack.

A necropsy is scheduled for today to investigate Hati's death.

"Understandably, this is an emotional time for keepers, many of whom have been on this chronic illness journey with him since April", Nill said. "We've lost a member of our family, and we are comforting each other during this time".
