Horrifying moment a woman is dragged off by a TIGER after getting out of her car at a safari park – before family member is mauled to death trying to save her
A woman was eaten alive and another seriously injured after they jumped out of a car in a tiger enclosure at a Chinese safari park.
Dramatic video footage captures the middle-aged woman flouting the warnings by getting out of the car, and she was killed instantly after she followed the younger woman out of the car at the Badaling Wildlife World, near the Great Wall of China.
Both had ignored repeated warnings to stay inside the vehicle, according to local media.
Sohu reported that the family – one older woman, a younger woman, a child and a man – were in the park, just over an hour north-west of Beijing, on Saturday.
The younger woman and the man are understood to have had an argument, at which point she stormed out of the car, reports Chinese media.
The older woman then followed her out – and was instantly attacked by the Siberian tiger.
The man is also understood to have tried to rescue his family members, while the child stayed in the car.
The 6,000 acre park, which allows people to either drive themselves or join a tour, tells people not to leave their vehicles at any point.
The family were eventually rescued by Badaling’s staff, but there was nothing that could be done for the older woman.
The younger woman was seriously injured, an official confirmed.

This is why women are unsuitable for certain types of jobs. Their emotions rule them to the point of outright insanity sometimes.

This was really avoidable but a bad disaster

I hope that they don’t kill the animal because it was NOT it’s fault. Rest In Peace to the woman who die, and get well wishes to the other lady.

It is China. They won’t kill the tiger.
