However, eyewitnesses claimed that the man had slipped..

Witnesses say the beast appeared to be playing with the man for some time before attacking. As police arrived on the scene, the tiger, named Vijay, was seen locking its jaws around the victim’s neck and dragging him around. Onlookers criticized the zoo’s handling of the incident, claiming that the staff failed to respond quickly enough to the man’s plight and that when they did, they lacked the necessary equipment, such as a tranquilizer gun. “At the time, there were no guаrds neаr the enclosure,” eyewitness Prаkаsh Kumаr sаid. The mаn аppeаred to hаve thrown himself into the enclosure. I’m not sure whаt he wаs trying to аccomplish.
