Recently, yet another individual found out the hard way that you really shouldn’t hand-feed wild animals.
The circus arrived in the Henan county of Xichuan yesterday with a truck full of ferocious beasts that attracted many passersby. However, not satisfied with only looking, an elderly man was captured on video reaching his hands inside two of the tigers’ cages in order to feed the animals.
Not one to turn down a delicious snack, one of the tigers soon bit down on the man’s right hand and refused to let go, even as people tried poking the animal with a long stick.
Eventually, the uncle fainted, falling to the floor when the tiger was finally made to release his hand. Onlookers called for an ambulance and the man was taken to the hospital. His current condition is not known.
