That’s what we call inviting your own death. Earlier this year a man tried to enter in a zoo by climbing over the zoo's outer wall, only to end up in a tiger’s cage where he was clawed to death.
Amazingly, people have not taken any lesson from this incident and some zoo-goers keep risking their lives.
According to the Huashang Daily, some tourists visiting Qinling Wildlife Park in Xian in Shaanxi try to save 40 yuan (377.08INR) by paying local residents to provide a ladder to climb over a wall into the wildlife park.
According to a Chinese newspaper, a visitor says, “I don’t know why I chose to enter the park this way.”
“Listening to the lion’s roar nearby really frightened me, I really regretted climbing into the park. It’s extremely dangerous,” he further added.
As per the report published in South China Morning Post park authorities are aware of these illegal zoo-goers but they have not taken any action yet.
A security guard of the zoo said, “These people just loiter near the park. They have done this [help visitors enter the park] multiple times. We don’t have an effective way to stop them”.
A man was mauled to death by a tiger after he climbed two three-metre walls into the Ningbo Youngor Zoo in Zhejiang province in January and if activities like this continue then we only have the zoo authorities to blame for.
