Tiger attacks and kills female keeper at German zoo before being shot dead

BERLIN (REUTERS) - A tiger attacked and killed a female keeper at Cologne zoo on Saturday before being shot dead, a zoo spokesman said. The gate of the tiger's enclosure had not been properly shut, allowing the big cat to jump on the woman and maul and bite her. She later died of her wounds in hospital. The director of the zoo himself, Mr Theo Pagel, shot the tiger dead, the spokesman added. Police briefly cleared the area after the incident but the zoo later reopened for visitors.
