A Chinese man was in for a shock after he tried to feed the caged zoo tiger which cost his two fingers after the big cat bit off two of his fingers. The tiger was part of a circus being staged at Jingziguan in Henan province on November 22. Seeing the man being attacked by the tiger, people rushed in to help the elderly man, hitting it with sticks. Following the incident, the victim was sent to the hospital for treatment.
Bai, 65, approached a caged lion and the tiger, trying to feed them banknotes. In the video, it is seen that the lion picked up the money and started chewing, but the tiger bit his right hand and would not let it go.
“He fainted with a bleeding hand. Two fingers were missing,” Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post quoted local media reports as saying.
This is not the first time such incident has come to the light, Previously, another man met the same fate in another zoo in China. A man visiting the Youngor Zoo suffered death by tigers, after he scaled a wall to get into the zoo for free, but paid the price with his life.
