Man tries to get eaten by a tiger

  • A Chinese man chose to commit suicide by feeding himself to a tiger. Yang Jinhai lowered himself into the enclosure at the Chengdu Zoo and performed movements for close to 20 minutes. 

    Reports suggest that his efforts eventually failed but the tigers did drag him by the back of his neck and gave him scratches. 

    Zoo officials rescued the 27-year-old man who is now being treated for depression. According to a witness, the tigers appeared to be nervous when the man showed up in the cage and "the female actually ran off."
