Bestial cruelty in the center of Tbilisi2013-02-01 19:02
For the last few days Tbilisi residents are discussing a case at the zoo this week. One of the zoo pets, Bengal tiger, has seriously wounded a man. The poeple have invented many versions and speculation of how this could happen. But the two polar views prevail. Some say that the guy was drunk, went to the tiger, and even teased him showing courage in front of friends; so he is guilty himself. Others accuse the administration of the zoo, which has not bothered to properly insulate the predators' territory from the people.
On Tuesday morning, three young men walked along the road returning from a party. Guys experienced a headache due to hangover. They were going to take a cab long before the unfortunate location. But cool morning was refreshing, so they decided to walk via the bridge to the shortest way to home.
The road passed through the zoo. The road is separated from the zoo with the iron kerb. But gradually turning into a bridge it breaks off, leaving the territory where the cells with predators are - tiger, lion, and a pair of rare white Bengal tiger - without fence.
The highway is unsafe, so the guys decided to get off the road and walk the remaining distance to the bridge on the dirt road. This road is falling into the territory of predators. Grass was still wet from the morning dew. And one of the guys, 22-year-old Guga Chavleishvili slipped and rolled head over heels right to the cage with white tigers.
Four pairs of eyes of predators were watching this picture. There was not a single obstacle on the way of Guga to cling and stop before the cell. Seeing the eyes of predator right before his face Guga confused, while his hand was hanging inside the cell. Tiger, not hesitating for a second, grabbed the hand and bit off part of the limb. Trying to help himself to get out, the guy tried to push the beast with the foot, but another tiger decide to help his neighbor.
All this lasted no more than twenty seconds. But for Guga it seemed an eternity. When the tiger tore off a part of thigh and left the guy alone for a while, there appeared, perhaps, the only way to be saved, but Guga had no power to crawl away. Just at this time, one of his friends arrived to help. He pulled the guy in the literal sense from the jaws of predators.
All this happened in off hours, an hour before the opening of the zoo. Note that during the off hours the guards are patrolling the zoo. But just at the time of the incident there was no one nearby. The boys summoned the patrol and ambulance.
