Man killed by tigers at zoo

The zookeepers made a grisly discovery this morning at Copenhagen Zoo

A young man was found dead in the tiger enclosure by zoo keepers as they arrived for work this morning.

“He was killed by the tigers,” Henrik Orye, of the Copenhagen police, told Ekstrabladet newspaper.

The police said they did not have further information at this time because the man, who was not employed by the zoo, has yet to be identified and his relatives have not yet been notified.
