Warning: If you don’t want to watch a human being get mauled to death by tigers, and/or watch tigers get shot by a rifle, you may not want to watch the below video. Because the below video shows a human being getting mauled to death by tigers while the tigers are being shot.
This guy Zhang scaled the walls into the zoo to skip out on paying the entry fee. He was probably expecting to drop in behind the snow cone stand and blend in with the crowd and get away scot-free, probably use the money he saved on admission by getting a turkey leg or cotton candy or some shit and just have a ball. The tiger enclosure, though. That’s tough.
The attack occurred Saturday at a resort on Dongqian Lake in eastern China’s Zhejiang province. A local government statement says the victim, identified only by his surname of Zhang, climbed a fence with a friend instead of buying tickets. The statement said Zhang’s wife and two children, as well as his friend’s wife, bought tickets to enter the zoo.
Zhang allegedly passed through a wire netting and eventually climbed a wall to enter the tiger enclosure, while his friend stayed back, the statement said. A tiger attacked him inside the enclosure, as visitors to the park apparently watched from a distance. Photos and video shared on social media appear to show Zhang lying on the ground as tigers circle him.
State television reported one tiger was shot dead by local police, and three others nearby were dispersed using firecrackers. One video posted online shows a tiger gnawing on his body as people can be heard screaming.
Again, I don’t know what it says about me that I pretty much always side with the animal in stories like this. It’s a real shame that one of them was killed for doing what tigers do. That idiot entered into their territory — a territory that is not their natural habit and that they were forced to call home. He got got because he fucked up. That tiger should still be alive. Shame.
That’s an awesome way to go, though. Well, let me back up. It’s a brutal way to go. The sensation of very a large and powerful jungle cat sinking its teeth into your neck as life slowly leaves your body would suck. The story, though. Dying via tiger mauling is legendary stuff..
