A Siberian tiger at a wildlife park near Beijing attacked and killed a man who climbed into its enclosure thinking he found a shortcut down from the Great Wall, a park official said Sunday. The 20-year-old man, surnamed Guo, had been hiking with two other people on the wall when the group decided to jump down to save time on the descent - unknowingly landing themselves in Badaling Wildlife World's tiger enclosure. The tiger pounced on Guo, knocking him down and clamping its jaws around his throat, said a wildlife officer who gave only his surname Wang. Guo was killed instantly. A park ranger who saw the attack chased the tiger in a jeep until it released the body, while the other two men escaped by clambering up a fence and out of the enclosure, Wang said.
