A 56 year old man in Mexico City has lost his life after a lion and tiger kept as exotic pets on the roof of a Mexican meat processing plant attacked while being fed.

Caretaker Angel Aguilar was feeding chicken to the cats when the lion swiped through the bars of a steel cage used to keep the animals, pulling him inside. The tiger then joined in the attack.

The man was still alive when paramedics arrived on scene in the neighborhood of Iztapalapa, but they could not get past the animals to treat him.

The two big cats, which had separate living quarters but came together to eat, were  kept by the plant’s owner as pets and were in good health.

After the attack, which left scraps of bloodstained clothing on the floor of the cage, the animals were sedated and the tiger’s jaws tied around a chunk of wood.

The tiger later died, apparently of suffocation, after being transported by animal protection authorities to a nearby zoo in a small container. The lion survived the journey.

     Mexico city is the second largest city in the world.
