Tigger: Friend of Pooh or Vigilante?
Written by Erik Yates
First it was the groping incident. Now Tigger is beating children. At least thats the story a visitor to Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom is telling.

It really doesnt seem like the hit was intentional, although other stories report the employee is already claiming self defense as the 14 year old was pulling Tiggers mask from behind.
It seems that the family really over reacted demanding that "Tigger be a man and step out of the costume." Poor Tigger seems that he should try just a little harder to stay out of deep Pooh.
