Two tigers escape after killing zoo official in Indonesia
Jakarta: A landslide on the Indonesian island of Borneo has opened the cage of a zoo, in which two tigers killed a crew member and escaped.
According to the international news agency, due to continuous rains on the island of Indonesia, a huge mudslide fell on the zoo, as a result of which many animals were crushed to death and two lions escaped.
The wildlife department chased the tigers and managed to get close to them. The officials gave sleeping pills to the tigers through a gun. One tiger lost consciousness immediately but the other tiger was not affected by the medicine.
The other tiger continued to growl, and was shot dead after another injection failed to save the lives of civilians.
On the other hand, the body of a zoo official was lying near the cage from which the two lions had escaped and there were marks of tiger teeth on his body.
