Tiger kills keeper at Polish zoo

A tiger has fatally wounded a keeper at a zoo in Wroclaw, south-western Poland.

Police said the rare Sumatran tiger attacked the man, probably during routine cleaning of the animal's run.

Police were notified by an ambulance crew who were called to the site. Prosecutors are investigating the accident.

TVN24 said the man had 20 years of experience in taking care of predators at the zoo.

Wroclaw zoo is due to host an international conference of European zoo directors on Thursday.
