A group of tigers at a Chinese zoo were given a special treat yesterday afternoon -- a live donkey.

In a video that has gone viral on Chinese social media, a reluctant donkey is seen being pushed out of the back of a truck into a moat surrounding the tiger enclosure inside the Yancheng Wild Animal World in Changzhou, Jiangsu province.

The men were reportedly led by an investor in the zoo, who was involved in a dispute with managers. The argument was reported to be about poor returns.

The zoo said that the donkey was tossed into the enclosure "in a fit of rage" and apologised to the onlookers, promising that there would never be a repeat of the incident.

In a graphic video which has since gone viral in China, one of the tigers lept onto the donkey's back after it was pushed into a moat around the enclosure, as the other tiger clawed at the back and head of its prey.

Witnesses said the men had attempted to take the donkey along with several other animals out of the park so that they could sell them.

However, after they were stopped by security the men decided to feed the animals to the tigers.

After the donkey was hauled in, staff and visitors to the zoo reportedly rushed to stop the men from pushing a sheep into the tiger enclosure.

Onlookers said they were alerted to what was happening when one of the tigers roared, and described the scene as "bloody".

They were stopped from taking zoo animals to sell. So they threw a live donkey into the tiger enclosure instead

Chinese news organisation The Paper quoted an unnamed investor as saying: "Since we could not have any benefits, we thought why not feed to the tigers, at least we can save on animal feed."

According to reports, a court case led to the zoo's assets being frozen two years ago, and it has been subsequently unable to sell any of its animals.

The Paper adds that the assets freeze means that animal transport permits, quarantine certificates and other important documents cannot be issued. The shareholder said: "Without these documents, we can only watch these animals die."

While many expressed outrage at the contents of the video, shocking scenes are relatively common at zoos and safaris in China.

Visitors to a tiger farm in the north-eastern city of Harbin are able to witness tigers eat cows, and they can also pay 60 yuan (£6.80) for live chickens to be thrown into the enclosures for "entertainment".

However, the brutality of the video of the live donkey has sparked a furious response on the Chinese Internet.

“Why are humans always worse than animals,” said one angry comment on Sina Weibo, China’s version of Twitter.

Yes and what will happen to the persons responsible? Let's hope the sentence is that others have to push them in to the tigers enclosure

Not gonna happen,he may be in jail for a couple of days and fined with some money,nothing will happen next.See,this is what I am furious about.
Some Japanese people hunt sharks and cut their fins when they are still alive,just because they taste good?
Workers in factory pour fodders into a duck to get a bigger liver.
A sable is skimmed alive to get its fur,which is made into fancy clothes for the rich.
A linsang is forced to eat excess amount of coffee beans and end up struggling to death,just because of huge quantity demand of Kopi Luwak.
Will they be punished,maybe yes,but most of the time no.
Is there anything that's left to experiment by humans?
I forgot how to forget.

Donkey is mere animal at last!  Human can kill and eat it, why can't the tiger?
This was ordinary phenomenon in the nature before modern civilization.  No wonder at all!
