Tiger revenge: Zookeeper who boiled cats for wine mauled to death

In a Chinese park, the zookeeper who has been accused of boiling big cat bones to make wine was fatally mauled to death on Thursday by a tiger. The man, described as in his 50s, has not been named.

According to The South China Morning Post, the zookeeper had been cleaning the tiger’s cage when he was attacked. The accident occurred at the Xiongsen Bear and Tiger Mountain Village in the city of Guilin in southern China. There were no tourists present at the time.

The zoo has been under criticism after investigations beginning two years ago revealed the tigers had been living in substandard enclosures.  Many of the animals were emaciated. After the animals died, their bodies were moved to a factory where Chinese tiger bone wine was produced. Breeding tigers has been banned.

Tiger bone wine is thought by many in the country to improve sexual prowess. Their bones are boiled with rice wine to make the 38% proof liquor. The concoction is sold in expensive hotels and restaurants.

The zoo keeps over 1,100 different tiger species, 600 Asian black bears and at one time had been China’s largest breeding facility.

    I’m sorry, but Chinese men using rhino horns, tiger’s bones, elephant tusks to increase their “sexual prowess” is an exercise in futility. They are not attractive or sexy, no way, no how. Besides, whatever children they sure will be killed anyway by the State. Forced abortion.

    There shouldn’t be any zoos in China as they don’t respect animals of any kind! They keep animals just so they can use them for food after they die! All Chinese zoos should be shut down and any remaining animals sent to sanctuaries where they will be safe!

    I love to hear news like this. Nothing is better than an animal abuser getting killed. It is about time they get a taste of their own medicine. Love to hear when Trophy Hunters get killed before they kill the innocent animal.
