Watch Video: Live donkey fed to tigers at Chinese zoo
An alive donkey was thrown inside a tiger enclosure at a zoo in China. The video of the horrifying incident has gone viral leaving eye-witnesses in utter shock.

As per reports, a shareholder, with the help of at least four other men pushed down the donkey into the water bordering the moat around the tiger's enclosure at the zoo in Yancheng city in Jiangsu. The shareholder was reportedly making losses and was planning to sell the animals but was prevented from doing so by the authorities.

As per a report in BBC, the zoo authorities have claimed that the zoo has been embroiled in a legal case which has led to its assets being frozen because of which it has been unable to pay the shareholders. But the shareholders on the other hand have alleged that the zoo and the court are in collusion on this and the legal case is just an excuse of not paying the shareholders.

The video shows the donkey being pushed out of a truck and as the donkey falls into the moat, one of the tigers quickly jumps into the water to grab the donkey and within seconds, two more tigers join to attack the donkey who reportedly died within half-an-hour of being thrown into the enclosure.

As the video went viral on social media, people expressed their anger over the cruelty caused to the poor animal. Netizens have termed the incident as "pure cruelty" and "barbaric."

Reports have stated that the zoo authorities have started holding meetings with the shareholders to avoid any such instances in the future.
