Tiger, tiger, burning bright / In the forests of the night /What immortal hand or eye / Could frame thy fearful symmetry? Although we're no Blake scholars, we've always thought that poem was about increasing zoo security, and now those immortal words have come to pass. San Francisco Zoo's tigers have spent three days acclimating to their new home and today will be the big cats' first public appearance since the December 25th attacks. Locals will surely be excited to welcome back the city's newest mascots and cause célèbre. Besides the taller fence, the zoo has taken the additional precautions of installing warning signs and surveillance cameras. Let's hope they're more effective than the city's current batch of cameras.
