Law of the jungle, baby

Here's ironic justice for you:

A guy robbed a couple at knifepoint at a zoo in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Fleeing from the zoo's security guards, the mugger leapt over a fence into an animal enclosure.

The Bengal tiger enclosure, as it happens.

The tigers were not amused.

After a brief trial, the feline court pronounced the offender guilty, sentenced him to death by mauling, and carried out the execution without delay.

I'm thinking this fellow, in his last moments on earth, fervently wished this was merely an episode of Deal or No Deal.

That, or a short story by Frank R. Stockton.
