NEW YORK: Before his now-infamous tangle with a Bronx Zoo tiger, David Villalobos adorned his Facebook page with New Age odes to Mother Earth and affirmations like ‘‘Be love and fearless''.
Police said that Villalobos had told detectives that it was without fear that he leaped from an elevated train into the animal’s den.
One of several postings from Thursday was a photo of a tiger licking a cub, and the comment ‘‘Nice.’’ Another was of a black jaguar. An earlier post displayed a promo for a movie called Facing Animals, a Dutch documentary about ‘‘the complex and often bizarre relationship between man and animal.’’
