Two tigers that escaped from their cage after killing a zoo keeper were shot dead in central China on Tuesday, state media reported.
The tigers mauled the keeper, surnamed Jia, who was feeding them at Danjiang Peacock Valley, a tourist attraction outside Nanyang city in Henan province, according to state broadcaster China Central Television.
The keeper was taken to hospital and later died.
The local authorities evacuated visitors and members of staff while armed police, forestry workers and fire crews were called to the scene in an attempt to round up the escaped tigers.
