In a tragic incident, a man met a tragic end after being mauled by four tigers at Sherbagh zoo in Bahawalpur.
The unsettling discovery was made by the zoo administration on Wednesday morning when they found the man’s lifeless body inside the tigers’ enclosure while tending to their feeding routine.
Details surrounding how the man and his body entered the zoo remain unclear at this time. In response to the alert, local law enforcement and rescue teams swiftly arrived at the scene, initiating a thorough investigation.
This unfortunate event brings to mind a similar incident in 2019, where a zookeeper in Karachi was severely injured by a white lion. The victim, Peer Datta, suffered serious injuries during a feeding session when the lion unexpectedly attacked him.
Such incidents underscore the need for enhanced safety measures within zoological facilities to prevent tragic encounters between humans and captive animals. The authorities are actively looking into the circumstances surrounding this recent incident to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the events leading to the unfortunate fatality.
