A group of angry zoo investors have fed a live donkey to tigers at a Chinese zoo after a dispute with management.
The incident took place on Monday afternoon at Yancheng city in Jiangsu province in front of stunned visitors.
The zoo said the shareholders had tossed the donkey to the tigers “in a fit of rage”, and apologised to the public for the incident.
Video clips and photos of the incident have gone viral on Chinese social media, triggering shocked reactions.
The donkey is seen being pushed out of a truck into a moat in the tigers’ enclosure, where it is quickly set upon by the tigers. Zoo visitors can be heard exclaiming in the background.
