Tiger kills visitor inside Delhi zoo.

shriram | 24th September 2014 | Forest And Environment

    In a hair-raising incident which was captured live on cameras, a white tiger killed a youth after he fell into the animal's moat in the Delhi zoo.
Eyewitnesses and zoo officials said the young man, who was later identified as Maqsood, a resident of Anand Parbat in Delhi, was leaning against the moat which separated the tiger enclosure from the visitors' gallery, tumbled into the dry moat and immediately was face to face with the tiger 'Vijay' which itself appeared initially surprised on seeing the human intrusion.

"As soon as the youth slipped and fell into the moat, the tiger approached him and silently watched him for nearly 15 minutes," Bittoo, an eyewitness, who recorded the entire incident on his mobile, told reporters.

He said what possibly provoked the tiger to attack the man was when onlookers and a guard tried to divert its attention by pelting stones at it.

"Everyone was pelting stones and making noises to divert the tiger's attention," Bittoo added. "It was then that the tiger pounced on the youth with his paw and dragged him inside his enclosure by his neck," Bittoo added.

Another eyewitness Himanshu said: "The man was cowering in fear and appeared to be pleading with folded hands to the tiger to spare him. The barricading around the tiger was hardly two to three feet in height.
