Female Tiger Killed by Its Companion at zoo

A five-year female Bengal tiger was mauled to death by a male tiger when romping in Shenzhen Safari Park Saturday.

According to the introduction of the witness, when romping in the enclosure, one tiger suddenly bit another younger tiger on its neck until it was motionless. Although the feeders came and drove away the tigers through firecrackers, it was too late to save the female tiger. The incident occurred at around four o’clock in the afternoon and lasted for about 10 minutes.

The Bengal tiger was five year old and was sent to Shenzhen Safari Park from Yunnan Safari Park in May this year with the administrative approval of State Forestry Bureau. The feeder introduced that the four tigers used to have a good time together. The dead Bengal tiger now ahs been frozen and will be treated as per relevant rules of the animal protection station.
