That reads that the tiger exploded in the same way as the pythons. I have seen a picture of an exploded python, think it tried to swallow an alligator, what made the tiger explode?Exotic animals are introduced by many means around the world. If exotic pets released, they can explode like the giant constrictors in our Everglades or the escaped TIGER from an illegal collection where I live. The individuals have it rough; no parental guidance as a juvenile and they behave so.
Mammalian Mating is unlikely because of numbers.
As urban sprawl pushes into wild areas animals adapt or die out. This is the prime reason we are experiencing new diseases like COVID that wipe out more individuals than the biggest Bengal Tiger.
Racoons, possums, skunks, black bears, mountain lions, coyotes were here before the first palm tree planted on Rodeo Drive.
I used to see deer feeding right off my freeway offramp in the morning and one foggy morning found my car surrounded by at least 100 California Quail. Buzzards sailed overhead every day and the occasional rattlesnake or Kingsnake would be found on my stairwell.
NO MORE, They literally levelled the hillside and backfilled a small valley ( Bible refernce?) and plunked down 8 mini mansions replete with wrought iron security fences to keep out apartment
dwelling and wild riffraff.
I worry about exotics. I still think encountering a Lion ( and have) part of the game and keeps me aware. Last time I was armed with a SAK, faced it with arms raised to appear bigger and growled 'here kitty,kity,kitty. It took off. If one should chew on a trophy wife's ankle while she's sipping her STARBUCKS LATTE' OH WELL
I am fighting malaise from my covid shot with the medicinal application of Lagavulin 16 year. I bought three bottles with my stimulus cheque. I meant populations of invasive species can explode in numbers.That reads that the tiger exploded in the same way as the pythons.

Since you mentioned tigers, then exotics, was the lion you encountered a real lion, or a puma? I assume the latter but present context could be unclear.
I grew up with black bears still about in SoCal and was stationed on Kodiak and did post military population studies on Kenai. I visited Barrow and saw Polar Bears. I came home and years later this starry eyed girl wants me to meet this guy her group was promoting. We drive to Santa Monica and it's TIMOTHY TREADWELL. I tried to explain the real world to him. I was told to leave after maybe 5 minutes. My parting shot was 'You are going to get yourself, maybe a companion and a bear killed. I will mourn the bear.'We live with the big cats and also the Lynx and Bobcats. The Black Bears are already coming out of hibernation (early) so the Grizzlies will be next. Yes, they wander our streets. The deer will actually attempt to eat your groceries before you can make it into the house. You have to think twice about unloading. I have yet to see any wolves or coyotes in the village but that's only time. For all practical purposes, it's really stupid to wander around alone after dark. Really stupid.
Isn't that a bit of an oxymoron? Fenced wilderness camp site?Kill sites and cubs. Two things that require a mile spacing. There's never any discussion. More and more wilderness campsites are 8' fenced and barbed wire along the top.
