A tiger at a show attacked a child in the city of Sakakah, north of Saudi Arabia, amid people’s screams as they tried to rescue her from the tiger’s grip.

Abdullah al-Shomari, the father of the child who is less than 5 years old, said his daughter was fine after she was attacked by the tiger which went loose inside the zoo while they held shows for visitors.

Thamer al-Radyan who is in charge of events at the zoo said the child who was allegedly attacked is the daughter of the man who presents the show, adding that the video is part of the shows which they train on well and present all the time and that the girl was not the daughter of a visitor like the video claimed.
