Friday Fun - News in Brief

Interesting news this week. A 16 year old girl was treated for injuries on Wednesday after being attacked by a tiger at Dublin Zoo yesterday afternoon due to her and a man scaling two fences, one of which was 2m high, to reach a Siberian tiger enclosure.

The girl then put her hand through the wire mesh of a third protective fence leading to the tiger ripping into her limb causing significant injury. She is now said to be in a stable condition in hospital.

No word yet on how the tiger's doing but reports suggest he's pissed off.

In other news a naked man disrupted a train service between Limerick and Dublin yesterday morning.

The train is understood to have been delayed for some 20 minutes when the man stood on the line before it departed from Limerick's Colbert Station and refused to leave. He was eventually removed by gardaí and later examined by a doctor.

The man is said to be pleased at the doctor's claim that he can get him "back on track".

And now for the key images doing the rounds:
