A terrible thing happened in the zoo of Cologne yesterday. A 43 year old female animal keeper obviously made a mistake when she cleaned the Siberian tigers' enclosure. For some reason, 4 year old male tiger Altai managed to pass the gate and attacked the woman from behind. She didn't survive, and also the tiger paid for this with his life as he's been shot by the zoo director himself:


I'm feeling sorry for the woman and her family, but also for that beautiful tiger who just did what tigers are doing in such situations. This is really sad!
