A man apparently unsatisfied with a court ruling fed a live donkey to tigers at a wildlife park in the eastern city of Changzhou in Jiangsu Province, shocking other visitors, Nanjing-based newspaper Modern Express reported.

Yangcheng Safari Park allows visitors to drive their cars within its confines to get a closer look at many of the animals.

A visitor posted on a local online forum that he was surprised to see a live donkey pulled from a truck by some people other than keepers and then thrown before tigers, which quickly mauled the creature to death in front of many tourists.

Another visitor said the vehicle also carried other animals, including goats, but tourists helped stop them from being fed to the tigers live.

Some citizens called the incident cruel and disturbing, but others said it could help keep the tigers wild.

Staff at the zoo said the man was individually responsible for the drama and acted without official approval. He is reportedly a stockholder unsatisfied with a court ruling that all assets, including zoo equity and animals, are frozen in a debt dispute.

The stockholder and his assistants decided to transport some animals out of the zoo, but when stopped by guards, decided to feed the animals to the tigers.
