I like to think society killed them, and the owner just sped up the process. When any type of dangerous animal escapes from anywhere it shouldn't be in the first place, the safety of humans is the first concern. There's never a real discussion on whether it's our attitudes towards confining wild animals that should be examined.
I could certainly do without zoos and their like. I could also do without humans who go into wild areas and get attacked, thereby causing--except in rare and wonderful cases--people to hunt down and kill that animal. Haven't we already won? We're on top of the food chain. We don't need to keep proving it.
There is a slightly darker aspect of my nature rooting for the wild animals to get their fill in these situations. Unfortunately, I know that the right people probably wouldn't be the ones to suffer.
