In the Vietnamese province of Binh Duong, an employee at a private zoo tried to redeem a tiger and lost her hands. It is reported by news portal The Australian.
Wounded 49-year-old In tan Thoi (Vo Thanh Quoi) found colleagues on Tuesday, June 4. The man had completely bitten off the right hand and the left was absent below the elbow. As it turned out, the Vietnamese attempted to atone for the tiger.
The man was taken to a local hospital and then transported to a medical facility in Ho Chi Minh city.
Researchers find it difficult to say whether in Vietnam, tigers in the wild. Animals bred on farms. Their body parts used in traditional medicine and ornaments.
Environmental activists in Vietnam have repeatedly accused the owners of private zoos in animal cruelty and irresponsible attitude to endangered species.
In April it was reported about how in the American state of Kansas a rare Sumatran tiger attacked a zookeeper. Her colleagues managed to distract the predator and to save the woman.
