A personal interest story for me “JB”. I am a fan of seeing poachers and illegal game trade criminals fall at the very hands of those they exploit.  Enjoy

A caretaker has died after suffering a tiger attack at a zoo in Guilin, southern China, which was accused of producing medicinal wine made from tiger bones and which, despite being illegal, remains one of the most popular elixirs of traditional Chinese medicine.

The incident occurred last Tuesday when the operator of the Tigers and Bears Park in Guilin was cleaning the tigers’ enclosure, according to the South China Morning Post.
