A Siberian Tiger attacked a young zoo-keeper, in front of the visitors, who entered his fence to feed him. The woman’s life was however miraculously saved through the efforts of quick-thinking terrified visitors who started shouting and throwing things at the Siberian Tiger.
The-15 year-old, Siberian male tiger, Taifun, attacked an unnamed zoo-keeper who went into the enclosure to feed him. The woman was severely injured and is said to be ‘expected to survive’. Several photos which are doing rounds on the social media shows the woman screaming in terror and desperately trying to keep the attacker off her.
Taifun, who is alleged to ‘never attack a keeper before’ can be seen taking numerous swipes at her with his giant paws. As per reports, the Siberian tiger – the largest species of cat in the world, was supposed to be in the different compound when the woman bought his food. Another report says that there were no other zoo employees present at the time of the incident other than the visitors.
Fortunately, people were able to distract the tiger with yelling and throwing objects at him which helped the woman escape certain death.
Later zoo employees arrived at the scene and shot a sedative to Taifun.
P.S. – The woman’s condition is stable, and she is out of danger.
