Tiger Escapes, Kills Keeper: A Siberian tiger that
escaped from its enclosure at a zoo in Cologne, western Germany, fatally wounded a woman employee on
Saturday before being put down, police said.
Investigators said the enclosure had not been properly
locked, allowing the feline to get out.
It made its way into a nearby building, where it attacked the
43-year-old employee, who died of her injuries.
The zoo director shot and killed the animal with a high-powered rifle through a skylight.
Siberian tigers are the biggest of the tigers and this one was a male. AFP
