BEIJING, Aug 3 — A tiger has been filmed attacking a car at China’s Badaling Wildlife Park, the same park where a woman was mauled to death and her daughter seriously injured last month.
This footage, reportedly shot mere days after the incident, was uploaded to YouTube by People’s Daily China and begins with the big cat casually sauntering over to a vehicle as it makes its way through the park.
In the clip, a woman can be heard asking her male companion in Mandarin: “Why is the tiger stopping in front of our car?”
As they debate what to do next, he exclaims, “It’s torn off my bumper.”
The woman can then be heard chuckling when he says that he’ll have to call his insurance company now.
“What are you going to say to them?” she quips, as the tiger casually drags his not-so-hard-won trophy into the bushes.
The clip ends with the pair inspecting the recovered part and saying there are “lots” of punctures from the tiger’s jaws.
It is, however, not known how the bumper was recovered.
