A 13-year-old girl Elizaveta Kutkina was said to have been seized by a tiger and held between its jaws for 40 minutes in Barnaul, Russia. The teenager reportedly enraged the tiger by banging its cage.
The zookeepers claimed the teenager and a friend, in an act of “childish stupidity” incited the tiger by going too close and banging on its enclosure. He said the schoolgirl was saved because the tiger could not bite or claw her properly though the bars.
