Employees at the most environmentally friendly zoo in Europe, were shocked to see a tiger eating a female zookeeper alive.

The incident unfolded earlier this week, at the Hamerton Zoo Park, which is located in Cambridgeshire, England.

Police said that they received a call on Monday, at about 11:30 a.m., reporting a very serious incident in the tiger enclosure.

Police confirmed that Rosa King, 33, died at the scene as a result of being mauled by a tiger.

“It is with huge regret that we confirm that Rosa King, a senior zookeeper who was an invaluable and highly respected member of our team, died on Monday morning, after entering a tiger enclosure at Hamerton Zoo Park.

“Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Rosa’s family and friends, many of whom worked alongside her at the zoo.

“We are cooperating fully with the investigation that is currently being conducted by Huntingdonshire District Council Environmental Health Department.

“The zoo will remain closed for the time being. We are not able to comment further at this time,” the zoo said in a statement.

The zoo called the incident a freak accident, and said that the tiger never escaped from its enclosure. Investigators confirmed that the incident does not seem to be suspicious.
