A resident of Guatemala Cipriano Alvarez (Cipriano Álvarez) tried to feed the 13 tigers in a cage, and lost both hands. It is reported by Newsweek.
Everything happened in front of witnesses. People during the attack, tried to save Alvarez and began to throw predators with sticks and stones. However, in the hospital, the doctors pronounced that his limbs can’t be saved. At the moment, Alvarez is in stable condition, despite extensive blood loss.
Later it turned out that the tigers were the local circus, and the victim was specifically hired for their feeding.
The Guatemalan authorities are investigating the conditions in which animals were kept. Coordinator of the Department for animal welfare, said that the tigers almost always Lodge in too small cages. In addition, owners often keep animals on a diet, they don’t get enough nutrients, which increases the risk of attacks on people.
