Shut Down Animal Park After Woman Was Killed By Tiger


Target: Chen Jining, Minister of Environmental Protection of the People’s Republic of China

Goal: Shut down the animal park where yet another visitor has been killed after being mauled by a tiger and send remaining animals to a sanctuary.

A woman was mauled and another fatally attacked by a tiger after they exited their car at a drive-through animal park. In just the latest fatal incident at Badaling Wildlife World in Beijing, China, a woman who exited her car was mauled by a tiger and her mother, who attempted to rescue her, was killed by the animal. This occurred in an area of the park where visitors drive their own vehicles through a Siberian tiger enclosure, an undoubtedly unsafe and perilous attraction.

Several human deaths have taken place at the park. Seven years ago, a young man was killed by a tiger in the enclosure  Two years ago a security guard was also fatally attacked by a tiger, and earlier this year a park employee was killed by an elephant.

Moreover, the number of wild tigers in China has fallen to a little over 20 individuals, and such parks do little to help wild populations recover apart from profiting from keeping tigers and other animals captive. Critics also say such facilities are sometimes used as cover for the illegal trade in animal parts. Sign this petition urging authorities to shut down this park profiting from keeping wild animals captive and putting the public at severe risk of harm and death.


Dear Minister Chen,

The latest fatal attack at Badaling Wildlife World in Beijing proves that this dangerous facility must be shut down once and for all. Not only does this place keep wild animals captive for profit, it puts its visitors in grave danger of being injured and killed. At least three other people have lost their lives at the park, proving that it is a hazardous place.

Additionally, with just over 20 wild tigers left in China, this park should be rehabilitating its resident animals rather than keeping them captive for profit. Keeping frustrated and imprisoned wild animals in such close proximity to human visitors is a recipe for disaster and Badaling Wildlife World should be immediately closed down. Please ensure this dangerous facility is shut for good and all resident animals sent to suitable sanctuaries.

    Stupid greedy people for running this park and stupid people who don’t pay attention to warnings – I feel sorry for the innocent animals who are forced to live in this place, not for the stupid woman who got out of her car. (Stupid is such a good word)

    • Signs are posted in the areas that you are not to get out of your car. She had an argument, and got out of the car. If this place needs to be shut down, it’s not because of this stupid woman, and this incident.

    The stupid woman who exited the car, when this is prohibited is to blame and not the poor tiger.

  3. Catherine Dugan says:

    I want to know what possessed this woman to get out of her car in a drive through animal park?! Wasn’t she aware there are wild animals in this park?! Didn’t they tell her to NOT get out of the car?!

  4. Maxine Sheehan says:

    This pair have earned their Darwin’s award for certain. What freaking idiot gets out of the car where there are tigers running loose? Couldn’t happen in a better country. A few billion more incidents like this and the dogs and cats will be safe from being eaten.

  5. Karen Remnant says:

    Natural selection at its best! Just how stupid are these people??
    I can’t see China doing anything to help the tigers held in this place! If anything they’ll end up dead and ground up into useless ‘medicine’!

  6. Linda Barnett says:

    When will man learn? Wild animals belong in their natural habitats NOT imprisoned in captivity. Man does not have the right to take ANY creature from the wild and place them in unnatural surroundings for man’s selfish amusement and profit! Badaling Wildlife World should be closed down for good, and if the animals cannot be rehabilitated to be returned to the wild, they should be re-homed to professional sanctuaries to be treated with respect and care. As for the “stupid” individuals who stepped out of their vehicles – words fail me!

  7. At least these Animals are in a big open sanctuary,,,, idiots stay away or better yet,,, stay in your car,,, HOW STUPID CAN PEOPLE BE????? I just hope these tigers are not murdered because of peoples stupidity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. how much more of this will be seen and wild animals killed due to stupid people
    getting out of cars ,letting kids as they like etc

  9. How stupid and reckless is that? The good news is that at least the victims won’t be able to pass on more of their stupidity genes.
