Tiger attacks worker at Zoo Dynamics

 

 

KAUFMAN, Texas A tiger chased down and mauled a man at an animal sanctuary in Kaufman County last week.

 

It happened Saturday, and witnesses say the man is lucky to be alive.

 

Donnie Roberts says he was doing landscaping at the animal sanctuary when the 300-pound Bengal tiger got Roberts’ arm in its jaws.

 

He says the tiger threw him down on his hip and got on his neck.

 

Roberts says he thought the tiger would kill him, but managed to stay calm. He prayed and was somehow able to get the tiger off him.

 

The tiger ripped off his ear and left claw marks over his body.

 

Roberts says he believes he has about two thousand stitches.

 

Now the animal is being quarantined.

 

 

For the cats,
