PostSubject: Tiger kills man in China   Mon Mar 09, 2009 11:15 am

Msn nine news cut and paste.

Monday, March 9,

A Siberian tiger at a wildlife park near Beijing attacked and killed a man who climbed into its enclosure thinking he found a shortcut down from the Great Wall, a park official said on Sunday.

The 20-year-old man, surnamed Guo, had been hiking with two other people on the wall when the group decided to jump down to save time on the descent - unknowingly landing themselves in Badaling Wildlife World's tiger enclosure.

The tiger pounced on Guo, knocking him down and clamping its jaws around his throat, said a wildlife officer who gave only his surname Wang.

Guo was killed instantly.

A park ranger who saw the attack chased the tiger in a Jeep until it released the body, while the other two men escaped by clambering up a fence and out of the enclosure, Wang said.

"The men ignored all the warning signs and jumped over the protective fences," Wang said.

The two men who escaped told police they had seen signs around the enclosure cautioning of predatory animals but did not believe the warnings because they could not see any, the Beijing Times newspaper reported.

The Siberian tiger, also known as the Amur, Manchurian or Ussuri tiger, is one of the world's rarest species.

They are the largest of the big cats, weighing up to 225 kilograms.

There are believed to be about 400 of the critically endangered animals in the wild.

How stupid can some people be. The next thing they will want to do is kill the Tigers for doing it.
They got what they deserved in my eyes.
