Li was quoted as saying that the women and children bought tickets and entered the zoo without incident, but the two men ignored warnings, and chose instead to try scaling the walls of the tiger enclosure to gain free entry.

Accompanied by a pal, he scaled the three metre wall only to be mauled to death by a tiger as two more beasts watched on.

The dead man surnamed Zhang, from Hubei Province, was among a group of six who visited Ningbo Youngor Zoo in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, at 2pm on Sunday, according to fellow traveler surnamed Li.

It is not yet known why the man entered the enclosure and authorities have opened an investigation.

One tiger dragged the man into the enclosure woods by his foot.

Zookeepers attempted to halt the attack with fireworks and water cannons, before they shot one of the tigers dead.

Last month, Etihad Airways also revealed plans to create a new European leisure airline group in a joint venture with TUI AG. A codeshare agreement with Lufthansa and an aircraft leasing agreement between airberlin and Lufthansa were also announced .

A shocked bystander said: "I saw the tiger mauling the person, whose face was covered with blood".

Following the attack, the man was transported to a nearby hospital where he died from his injuries.

They did not identify the man, but said he was middle-aged and that his wife and children were also at the park. "Every time he sat up, the tiger pushed him down again", a witness told local media.

Cops and local forestry bureau staff arrived at about 3.15pm after the zoo was shut at 3pm.

Last July, a elderly woman who tried to save her daughter who stepped out of her vehicle during a safari-style trip in Beijing's Badaling was killed after a captive tiger pounced on her.
