A wild animal, which was apparently on the loose from the flooded zoo, attacked and killed a man in the center of Tbilisi on June 17.
The wild animal, reported by eyewitnesses as a white tiger, attacked the man close to Heroes Square, not far the zoo, near an area where a swimming pool, Laguna Vere, was previously located. The incident occurred inside a building, located in that area.
“The man in his 40s was already dead when brought to hospital,” a doctor said.
Armed law enforcement officers were deployed in the area and several shots were heard coming from the scene.
