This blood-chilling video shows the high price you might pay if you don’t follow the safety rules when watching wildlife: death by a tiger at a zoo.
In 2016, at the Badaling Wildlife World, a drive-through animal park, a woman was fatally mauled by a Siberian tiger.
The incident occurred when a woman stepped out of her car – directly violating the vital park-safety rules. CCTV footage captured the tiger dragging her away.
While it’s greatthat they offer close encounters with wildlife, they can lead to dangerous situations if safety protocols are not strictly followed.
Although the animals in these settings are captive animals, they still maintain their wild and predatory instincts.
However, when individuals step out of their vehicles, animals will register people as threats or prey – potentially triggering their natural predatory instincts.
The question of who bears the most responsibility, the visitors or the zoo, in situations like this remains complicated and polarized.
