You know those protective bars and barriers in zoos, they are installed not to protect the animals from you, but you from the animals. Unfortunately, some ignorant ones decide to jump over the fence and paid heavily with their lives.
A series of horrifying videos uploaded on Facebook showed how dangerous it is to ignore zoo warnings and venturing too deep into the lair of predatory animals. It showed a case fatal tiger attacks after the victim, a young man, somehow ended in the tiger’s enclosure in Ningbo Youngor Zoo in Zhejiang province.

Visitors watched in horror as the victim was snatched and dragged away under trees by the tigers. It took over an hour to rescue the victim, who later pronounced dead at the hospital, according to The Star Online.
It was said that the rescue team had tried to chase the tiger away using firecrackers.
Zoo officials reported that an alarm was raised around 2.30pm when the victim was attacked by the tiger. He was said to have teased the tiger before the attack.
This is not the first time such an incident had happened in a zoo, a 57-year-old woman was mauled to death after trying to save her daughter from a tiger attack at a drive- through wildlife park in Beijing last year.
