Top Cutlines -- 1/16/07

Zoo staff members show the teeth of a Tiger named Lily which bit a four-year-old boy who posed with her for photos at a zoo in Kunming, in southwestern China's Yunnan province Monday. Both tiger and the boy survived the bite. The tiger trainer alleged that Lily's been trained for three years and had been tame enough to pose with tourists previously. You write the cutline.
