A group of Siberian tigers attacked and injured a couple who were driving their car through a game park. The game park was strictly liable for their injuries. Section 267.1(7) of the Insurance Act makes all parties liable for injuries resulting directly or indirectly from use or operation of an automobile severally liable for the damages. The judge determined that section 267.1 of the Insurance Act did not apply because the injuries suffered by the insureds when they were attacked by the tigers could not be said to arise from the use and operation of an automobile.
