Tiger kills keeper at zoo: Tiger Kills Keeper, A Sumatran tiger has killed a keeper at a zoo in Poland – the day before it was due to host an international conference of zoo directors.

The keeper, who has not been named, died “virtually on the spot” at Wroclaw zoo on Wednesday morning, according to a police spokesman.

The attack was believed to have happened while he was routinely cleaning the animal’s enclosure.

Reports said the keeper had worked at the zoo for 20 years and had been looking after predators for the last 15.

The zoo has been closed to visitors and an inquiry has been launched to find out why the tiger was in the enclosure at the time.
