Port Elizabeth, South Africa, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 17th Jun, 2021 ) :A worker at a game park in South Africa has been killed by a Siberian tiger, which leapt over an electric fence, killing him instantly, police said Thursday.
Police spokeswoman Priscilla Naidu told AFP that a 50-year-old man was repairing an electric fence at one of the enclosures when a tiger leapt over, killing him on the spot.
Police "are investigating," she said.
