A famous circus trainer has been fatally mauled by four tigers in Italy. According to multiple sources, 61-year-old Ettore Weber was in the midst of training the big cats on Thursday night when one of them turned on him – three other tigers joined the fray and no one was able to intervene for an estimated 30 minutes, reports the Daily Mail.

Weber was taken to an area hospital and died that night from severe injuries.

Weber and the four tigers were part of the show billed, “A journey through five continents.” The tigers involved in the mauling have been sent to a sanctuary to be held while the investigation is completed.

In April, a tiger attacked the founder of a wildlife sanctuary in Arizona. The man sustained serious injuries but did survive the mauling. The tiger involved in the attack was not euthanized and the man who was injured blamed the mauling on human error.
