Human-animal conflicts in zoos seem to be on the rise. We have the killing of Harambe the gorilla still fresh in our memories; while closer to home, the killing of a man by a tiger in Delhi zoo made headlines the world over. Now, adding to the tally is a woman who was mauled to death after trying to rescue her relative who was dragged away by a tiger in Beijing Badaling Wildlife World.
The attack took place when one of the women left the safari car in an angry huff following an argument with her relative. The video shows a tiger promptly dragging the woman away from the vehicle. While the woman who was dragged away survived, her relative was mauled to death trying to save her.
CCTV footage of the attack has emerged online. Watch it for yourself:
