Would you play tug-of-war with a 450-pound tiger?

We can't decide how we feel about the "Tiger Tug" exhibit at Tampa Bay's Busch Gardens. Regardless of how you feel about zoos or animal captivity, playing tug-of-war with a 450-pound Bengal tiger certainly sounds exciting — and watching video of a tugging match even gives one the impression that the tigers enjoy the stimulation.

Still, I find this tough to watch without imagining something like the opening scene from Jurassic Park. Plus, the zoo houses a total of seven Bengals. Can you imagine what could happen if they all teamed up? It would be absolutely awesome terrifying.
