Chinese zoo animals are already responding to Sunday’s tragic killing of a tiger in Ningbo that tried to eat a man who had mistakenly climbed into its enclosure.
In a short video that has gone viral on Chinese social media today, a zebra is seen chomping down on a zoo worker’s arm and then dragging him around like a rag doll with more zoo staff in helpless pursuit.
The clip comes from a recent performance at the Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhou. Apparently, it took over 2 minutes to free the unfortunate worker from the zebra’s clutches.
You can watch the video below on YouTube:
While the zebra was reportedly responding to being rushed along by the worker, it also may have been taking a little revenge for what happened at a zoo in Ningbo on Sunday when a man had the misfortune of climbing into a tiger enclosure while trying to avoid paying for an entrance ticket.
Footage shows a pack of tigers surrounding the man before staff used fireworks and water guns to scare them away. However, one tiger remained unperturbed and continued to drag its victim into the forest. Eventually, workers shot and killed the tiger and rescued the man who would die shortly after at the hospital from his injuries.
“After what happened in Ningbo, animals are rebelling! Animals across the globe, prepare to resist,” commented one Weibo user.
