Delhi: Zookeeper Attacked While Trying To Give Water To Royal Bengal Tiger
A 50-year-old zookeeper at the National Zoological Park was attacked by an eight-year-old Royal Bengal tiger early Tuesday morning, said zoo officials.
The incident took place around 4 am when zookeeper Fateh Singh and a contractual labourer went to give water to Rama, the tiger.
“The tiger has been unwell since July and the zookeepers routinely visit it to keep an eye on the animal and give it water or food. At 4 am, when Singh went to check on it, Rama suddenly snapped and hit him on his right hand with its front paw from inside the cage,” said a source at the zoo.
Another incident at the Delhi zoo – now a tiger attacks a zoo keeper who almost lost two fingers.
The excuse is that he brought water.
But how is it possible there is a direct contact with a lethal animal?
The big question is when this zoo is being closed down, because of the many incidents and breaches of protocols.
