A tourist was yesterday mauled by three tigers in front of his wife and child at Ningbo Younger Zoo, China, according to horrified witnesses. Zoo keepers tried to frighten the animals away with
firecrackers and water canons, but the animals were undeterred.
The animals then bit into his head and neck and ripped off his clothes, leaving him face down on the ground in just his trousers.
One tiger was shot dead after the visitor reportedly climbed into the enclosure and walked towards the animals as they were being fed.
One tiger was then seen dragging the man’s blood-soaked body into the woods by his foot. The man was rushed to hospital from the zoo in East China’s Zhejiang Province.There are conflicting reports on his condition. Some people say he is still being treated, but others claim he has died.
The reason why he entered the cage is not yet known.
