A young female zookeeper in Kaliningrad, Russia has seen the glimpse of death when she was attacked by s Siberian tiger when bringing food to it.
The undisclosed woman was bringing food to the tiger not knowing that it’s cage was open.
Just as she reached the cage, the tiger named Typhoon, sprang on her and attacked her while shocked visitors watched.
The visitors at Kaliningrad Zoo in Russia were able to save the woman by throwing stones, tables, and chairs taken from a nearby cafe at the tiger until the animal backed away and the woman was able to run to a secure part of the compound. She was immediately rushed to the hospital and, though she’s in critical condition, she is expected to survive.
“The girl’s face was bleeding,”She screamed and tried to fight off the animal.” an eyewitness said.
A spokesman praised the visitors and told of how the attack happened. He said it was the first time in the history of the zoo that the animal attacked a man.
“The animal entered the enclosure when the keeper was there,” said a statement. “The tiger attacked the human.”
“Visitors with their shouting, stones, and other improvisation managed to distract the animal. This allowed the zoo employee to hide in a back room.”
