A tiger mauled a Chinese man
to death when he tried to take a short cut through a wildlife park near the
Great Wall, the Beijing Youth Daily reported on Monday.
Rangers at the Beijing Badaling Wildlife Safari Park, near the wall's most
popular tourist spot, rushed to the tigers' grazing area on Tuesday on hearing
desperate cries of "Save me! Save me!", the newspaper said.
But by the time they arrived the man's neck was gnawed and his bloodied body
showed no signs of life, the paper said.
