Tiger kills child at China zoo


Source Link: newsinfo.inquirer.net

BEIJING -- A six-year-old girl was mauled to death by a performing tiger at a zoo in China as she was being photographed with the animal, state press said Friday.

The attack occurred Thursday at the Kunming Zoo in Yunnan province. The animal lunged at the girl's head when a flashbulb went off as the child was being photographed, the Kunming Daily reported.

I wonder how well trained the tiger was? They go through all sorts of programs in western countries to make sure that they are tamed and such, but for a relatively backwards nation such as China, they seem to have a fair few 'quality control' issues.
Pfft. Animals should only be held in captivity for rehabilitation or if they are critically endangered, not for public viewing, thinks I. It's a pity those sorts of places need money, and so they import all sorts of animals and call them 'zoos'.


No offense, but that'd be a pretty good photo.
