On this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, Shiva the tiger met with a terrible fate at the hands — and teeth — of a horde of walkers.
In the episode “Some Guy,” Ezekiel and his soldiers were devastated in the battle against the Saviors. Alone in the woods with Jerry and Carol, Ezekiel lost his will to fight on as the King of the Kingdom.
Just when he was ready to sacrifice himself to protect his friends from the walkers, however, Shiva ran in to defend her master. Unfortunately, the walkers proved to be too much for the tiger, and she was soon overwhelmed. The undead began to feast on her, permitting her companions to get away.
Considering the tiger’s fate in the comic book series, this appears to be the end for her. The one thing we can all hope for is that she doesn’t come back as a zombie tiger.
