Answer by Adriana Heguy:
Mammals, unless they are natural flyers or gliders, have fear of heights. It is instinctual; otherwise what would prevent them from jumping off cliffs? Human beings are also born with fear of heights and falling, it's not simply taught ().
Almost nobody is strong enough to push a tiger off a cliff; a tiger weighs about 800 lbs! So even if the tiger was unconscious, it would take a professional strong man or a bunch of average men to do that.
If the tiger was conscious, well, I don't think I need to tell you what would happen to guy trying to push on a tiger's rump.
