provides security in the zoo to submit a report soon.” Chakraborty said such entry into tiger enclosure had taken place earlier in the country — once in this zoo and twice in Kolkata’s Alipur zoo.
About a decade ago, a drunk man had made an attempt to enter the tiger enclosure here but was rescued.
On December 16, 2000, a drunk man had jumped into the tiger enclosure of Alipur zoo, swam across the moat and got near a tiger, Bob, who mauled him to death.
Prior to that, on the New Year day of 1996, two drunk men tried to garland tiger Shiva after entering its enclosure. The animal killed one of them and injured the other.
