One woman was killed by a tiger while another woman was injured in the process of trying to save the first woman in Beijing. It was reported by Chinanews.com that the attack took place at Beijing Badaling Wildlife World on Saturday, 23 July, when one of the women left the vehicle following an altercation.
A tiger quickly attacked her and dragged her off, which prompted the second woman to leave the vehicle in an attempt to help the first woman. However, in the process, another tiger mauled her to death, before carrying off her body.
The two women were accompanied by a man who aided the rescue attempt and a small child, who were uninjured. It has been reported that park personnel quickly rushed to the women’s aide, but were too late to save one of them.
The park’s policy allows visitors to drive their own cars safari style through an open space where the animals roam free. However, visitors are cautioned not to alight from their vehicles.
