On Wednesday morning a Siberian Tiger escaped at Knuthenborg Safari Park in Denmark. The tiger, was a recent arrival from Aalborg zoo.
The animal somehow forced and scaled a fence and climbed into an enclosure. No visitors were in danger at any time and the escape drill was quickly activated. The tiger was shot dead. The situation is being assessed. There have been no similar incidents in 40 years and steps are being taken to prevent a similar incident occurring.
