China: Angry zoo investors feed live donkey to tigers

Visitors to a Chinese zoo got ringside seats to a shocking live feeding after a group of investors tossed a live donkey into a tiger pit.

Apparent videos of the incident, which took place Monday at a wild animal park in the eastern province of Jiangsu, provoked an outraged response on social media, with many questioning how the men could engage in such an inhumane act.

In response, the zoo issued a statement on its official Weibo social media account Monday, saying that the incident resulted from a court case with another company, which had enraged investors.

The dispute, which has gone on for two years, has made it difficult for the company to carry on its regular business, the statement said.

The investors, it added, have not seen any profit in two years, making them very “dissatisfied.”

So dissatisfied that they snatched a “donkey and a sheep” to feed to the tigers.

    Every time I get angry about missing my return on investment numbers I like to feed a small animal to a larger animal.
    At least this is not as bad as the videos of Chinese boiling dogs alive or running over children, so I guess this is a win.

      well the investors won’t havevto pay to feed the sheep or donkey anymore and it saved on food for the tigers for a day…. it’s still bazzare and obvious something is lost in translation.

    • The Chinese eat members of Peta. Along with everything else.

    What a grotesquely barbaric people the Chinese have become. And to think that their culture was widely imitated throughout Asia.
    This is people growing up under communism

    • I don’t think animal rights have ever been a priority for them. It’s just heartbreaking. Some poor tame creature who probably trusted humans….

        Hell human right hasn’t been a priority either since ’49. The commies managed to utterly destroy the Chinese love of life and big families
