"A CLEANER, who climbed into the enclosure of three Sumatran white tigers on Thursday was set upon and mauled to death. An Australian couple, who did not want to be named, said that they heard a splash and saw the worker making his way across the 10 metre-wide moat at 12.15pm."  

"Waving a broom and pail, he approached the big cats, each weighing over 100 kg.The largest tiger lunged at him and he fell and quickly recoiled in a foetal position while trying to cover her head with the pail. The horrified Australians and other visitors at the enclosure thought it was part of a show until one of the tigers bit Mr Nordin's back and started dragging him to the tigers' den."
