NEW DELHI: A Chinese man lost his fingers trying to touch a caged tiger at a circus.

Retired teacher Zhu was said to have placed his hand inside the cage, wanting to touch the tiger’s hair. Zhu was seriously injured when the animal grabbed his hand and snapped off four of his fingers at the show in Nankang, Jiangxi province, reports the China Daily.

The 61-year-old reportedly lost consciousness on the spot and was later paid 3,500 yuan as compensation by the circus officials.
