The daughter of a woman eaten alive by a safari park tiger is suing zoo bosses for £175,000.
The mother, named only as Mrs. Zhou, was mauled to death by a Siberian tiger as she tried to rescue her daughter from the jaws of another tiger.
Daughter, named as Zhao, was pounced on and dragged away by the big cat at Badaling Wildlife Park in Beijing, China.
She suffered serious injuries and has reportedly been left disabled following the horrific incident in July last year.
The tragic incident began when Zhao got out of a car inside the Siberian tiger enclosure, apparently to berate her partner in the driver’s seat.
One of the powerful creatures quickly pounced at Badaling Wildlife Park in Beijing, China.
Her mother and a man then also got out and went to her rescue.
Mrs. Zhou was then attacked by a second tiger who dragged her to her death as park rangers frantically tried to intervene.
Zhao survived the attack and is now reportedly suing the wildlife park for a 1.55 million yuan payout (£175,000).
She demanded the park take partial responsibility for her mother’s death on July 23, 2016.
The business was cleared of any wrongdoing following a previous official investigation and officials ruled there were no safety concerns at the safari park.
The payout petition apparently includes 1.25 million yuan (£141,000) to cover Ms. Zhou’s funeral cost, living expenses for Ms. Zhou’s dependants and consolation compensation for Ms. Zhou’s family members.
It also included 310,000 yuan (£35,000) for Ms. Zhao to cover her surgery fees and lost wages.
The horrendous incident was partly captured on shocking CCTV footage.
A silver car is driving along a paved pathway through the park when it comes to a stop.
A young woman gets out of the front passenger seat, slams her door and stomps round to the driver’s side.
The driver also opens his door as the woman appears to remonstrate with him.
But within seconds, a tiger appears from nowhere and pounces on the woman’s back from behind.
She appears to hear it coming only at the last second and is unable to escape.
The animal pulls her to the ground and away from the vehicle with lightning speed.
