The two men who survived a tiger attack at the San Francisco Zoo are expected to be released from the hospital in the next couple of days.

An unidentified friend of the tiger attack survivors says the brothers are well mentally and physically, but had no answer when asked why they wouldn't speak without an attorney present.

San Jose police confirmed today that 23-year-old Kulbir and 19-year-old Amrit Paul Dhaliwal were arrested near their home in September. They face charges of resisting arrest and being drunk in public. The brothers are scheduled to appear in court next month.

And now, San Francisco police are investigating the possibility they played a role in provoking the Christmas-day tiger attack.

Older brother Sunny refused to say more about the incident, and no one from the family home has granted interview requests.

Doctors say the men are in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.
