Woman mauled to death by tiger in China animal park

Here's another crazy animal attack story, there's been a lot this summer!

(CNN)A woman was mauled to death by a Siberian tiger and her female companion was injured while on a safari-style tour in China, state-run media reported Monday.

Part of the horrific attack at the Badaling Wildlife World animal park near Beijing on Saturday was caught on a security camera and provided to CNN by China's state television station CCTV. The park allows visitors to drive their vehicles through a tiger enclosure.

The video shows a woman get out of the passenger seat of a car and walk over to the driver. As the driver opens his door, the woman is suddenly grabbed from behind by a tiger and forcefully dragged away.
The video shows the driver and a second woman passenger rush to the woman's aid before a Jeep heads to the scene.

The rest happened off screen, but the state-run Xinhua news agency reported that the second woman was the one mauled to death -- by another tiger as she tried to rescue the first woman, who was injured.
Several signs at the park read: "Cherish your life. Never get out of your car."

Xinhua reported that an investigation into the incident was underway and that the zoo had been temporarily closed.
The Beijing Tourism website says that the park is famous for "raising fierce animals in large groups in open areas" and that it has 10,000 wild animals, including brown bears, Malayan Sun bears, leopards and wild wolves.

Seriously, how stupid do you have to be to get out of your car in a situation like this. And let me get this straight, she got out of the car to go around the other side to talk to the driver, the person she was already sitting next to inside the nice, safe car?? Other two were also kinda dumb to think they could save her, especially with other tigers around. It was one of them that was killed.

Didn't they change all the US parks to enclosed trams where deadly animals are loose? I know they did in San Diego. Trusting humans to obey simple rules is always a mistake.

I don't think it does much good if the deadly animals are loose on the enclosed trams.

I don't understand why open zoo places like these exist. I wouldn't feel safe even inside my car. I need a large metal fence to feel some sort of security

Hmmm this incident is making me rethink the Dinosaur Park idea I've had under wraps for the last few decades while we try to get these raptor eggs to hatch.

I find that story hard to believe. Tigers don't eat Chinese food since they know they'll get hungry again 30 min later.

It's the safaris fault for not putting up signs that warn about tigers. Putting up signs that say not to get out of your car are just not enough.

Apparently, people in China are as stupid as all those intrepid Americans who compete for the Darwin Awards. Survival of the fittest...

Re: Woman mauled to death by tiger in China animal park

Seems to be a global epidemic of stupidity. If these people want to get themselves offed in their ignorance, then I'll just call it population control, and yet another fine example of the de-evolution of humanity.

What part of any so-called intelligent human being thinks it's OK to get out of their car in a lion preserve? Do they think the lions are these cute cuddly teddy bear-like creatures? Where does that come from? What are they being taught these days and by whom? Common sense seems to be out the window these days...

I guess the driver won the argument... if you don't count the tiger.

Just to play the devils advocate, perhaps the argument was a long one and she didn't realize that they had travelled from a 'safe' part of the park and into the area with tigers.

i bet that's exactly what they were thinking. and i'm guessing it's from the movies. "hey look, the animals can talk, sing, and dance and not mauling the shit out of that dude in the loin cloth; we'll be fine."
