Ouch! Bad Pussy

I always wonder about the people who get into cages with wild animals with sharp teeth and sharp claws, their mental state anyway.

A senior zookeeper was today mauled to death by a white tiger at the park as horrified tourists looked on.

Northland Police District spokeswoman Sarah Kennett  confirmed that around 11am this morning two keepers went in to clean the white tiger enclosure when it attacked one of the keepers.

The keeper suffered injuries to the abdomen and lower leg which involved “tearing” by a big cat.

Ms Kennett said despite the best efforts of the other keeper the tiger wouldn’t let go. The man died at the scene before the ambulance arrived at the park.

The tiger has since been shot dead.

I fail to see why the Tiger was shot, it was just being a tiger and the silly man-beast walked in just before lunch.

Anyway this will take the heat off the Super City, the Budget and Mt Albert.
