A tiger has attacked and killed a man, believed to be a student, after he reportedly climbed into the animal’s enclosure at Delhi zoo.
According to Associated Press, National Zoological Park spokesman Riyaz Ahmed Khan said the man climbed over a knee-high fence and jumped 18ft down into a moat, despite being repeatedly warned not to get too close to the enclosure.
Television pictures show the student, believed to be around 20 years old, crouching near a wall with the tiger next to him.
AP said his body remained in the enclosure two hours after the attack and he was pronounced dead by the time the authorities reached him.
