Catch a Sneak Peak on Sunday, February 13, at 10 PM ET/PT; Series Returns to Regularly Scheduled Time on Fridays at 9 PM ET/PT Beginning February 18

(New York, New York, January 18, 2011) - FATAL ATTRACTIONS - one of Animal Planet's top performing series of last year is back for a second season. Starting with a sneak peak on Sunday, February 13, at 10 PM ET/PT followed by weekly premiere episodes beginning Friday, February 18, at 9 PM ET/PT, Animal Planet tells the intense, heart-wrenching, true stories of people who choose to live with deadly "pets" - wild animals that are capable of catastrophic injury and even death. But these people say they are taking the ultimate risk for love. They see these "pets" as family members; they live with them, sleep with them...their lives become completely intertwined with theirs.

The premiere episode, A Tiger Stalks New Jersey documents deadly love, dangerous obsessions and tragic real-life situations. It's a story that sounds like an urban legend, except this one's real.

A stray male Bengal tiger is loose and terrorizing the suburban streets of New Jersey. After unsuccessful attempts to capture the 600-pound beast, police are forced to shoot it. However, that doesn't answer the underlying question - where did the tiger coming from, and why is it found stalking the streets? The premiere story is a winding investigation that leads to a very grisly revelation.

Upcoming stories feature close situations with lions, crocs, bison, tigers and deer, including the following:

A passionate Texas animal trainer trusts his beloved animals so much that he introduces his 12-year-old daughter to the act. Trusting her father, she feels completely safe in a ring with six fully grown tigers. But can her mother's fear and influence get in the way of her dream?

In Australia, a nurse has a curious living situation - she takes in stray domestic pets, has a 16-year-old son and shares her home with three pet crocodiles.

Things don't turn out well for a New York corrections officer who is rammed and pierced repeatedly by his pet deer.

FATAL ATTRACTIONS is produced for Animal Planet by Oxford Scientific Films. Series producer and director for Oxford Scientific Films is Nigel Levy; executive producer for Oxford Scientific Films is Caroline Hawkins; Clare Birks is CEO for Oxford Scientific Films.
