Secondly, her mother Zhou also violated the rules and left the vehicle as she attempted to save her daughter, which led to her death.According to the report, Beijing Badaling Wildlife World has clear warning signs at the zoo, and provides leaflets to tourists instructing them of the rules, with visitors also required to sign a responsibility agreement.The staff of the zoo verbally warned the woman to get back in her car before the incident occurred and immediate rescue efforts were carried out by the zoo after the attack, the report said.The investigation found that the facts show the zoo will not take major responsibility for the incident.The incident has shocked many people in China, with footage released by Chinas state media CCTV, showing the attack widely viewed. The footage shows a woman getting out of a car and walking to the drivers side, with a male driver then getting out and speaking with the woman. While they are talking a tiger pounces on the woman and drags her away. The footage then shows a second woman getting out of the car and heading off to help the first woman.Later media reports confirmed that the two women were mother and daughter, with the daughter suffering severe injuries, while the mother was killed.The incident has sparked heated debate on who should take responsibility for the attack: the tourists or the zoo.Some netizens argued that the wildlife park should not be responsible for the incident because all visitors are informed of the danger and they must sign an agreement with the park confirming they will stay in their cars.However, others believe that the park should take responsibility because personal cars touring the zoo are not appropriate and the zoo should provide its own vehicles for tourists to view the animals, especially when entering the enclosures of predators.(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor: Yuan Can,Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9105160;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingNewly born twin cubs of South China tiger seen in Nanchang ZooMeihua Mountains: home of South China TigerAdorable white lion cubs show off in Ukraine zooSiberian tigers stay cool amid summer heat in NE ChinaTigers play with water to beat heat in N ChinaWe RecommendWorlds fastest bullet train to start operating next month
