Puntam County animal attack included in an Animal Planet TV show

Posted by wlpo on October 8, 2010

An unfortunate incident in Putnam County’s history will be featured on national television Friday night.

Animal Planet is debuting a new season of their series “Fatal Attractions”.  The show is based on people who chose to live with wild animals and often are hurt or killed because of it.

The show came to Putnam County in April to film a segment about a 2003 incident where three tigers attacked their owner in rural Hennepin.  The owner was killed and deputies had to shoot two of the tigers.  A 7-year old girl was bitten at the same house the year before by one of the tigers.

“Fatal Attractions” hits the air at 8pm Friday.
