    Most Lamentable Event of the Year

    The tragic incident which occurred on Tuesday the 23rd in which a 20-year-old youth was mauled to death by a white tiger in Delhi’s National Zoological Park can be considered to be the most lamentable event of the year. The whole nation was shocked hearing the news.

    According to eye-witness the man crossed the iron barrier and leaned into the enclosure, despite the guard warning him to stay away. He then fell and was seen sitting with folded hands for the next few minutes as the animal kept watching him. The tiger pawed the youth on his neck and arm. It then grabbed him by the neck and dragged him to the upper area of the enclosure. The Zoo guards managed to scare the animal with crackers and loud sound. The tiger, a zoo-bred animal, then left the body and went back into its cage.

    For nearly three hours after the incident, the body of the deceased lay in the enclosure. It was then taken by the Delhi Police to All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

    The Zoo official elaborated that all tiger enclosures have been designed according to Central Zoo Authority standards and it was impossible to get into the enclosure without scaling the standoff barrier.
