There could have been a lot of things done in the situation but was not. And so we are faced with the troubling mishap. It is horrifying that something like this has happened being that this tiger is in a zoo and held in a specific area where no one other than professional authorities are supposed to be.
All security measures laid by Central Zoo authority were followed by Delhi Zoo, so there is no security lapse from their side.The youth himself and the crowd who provoked the tiger were responsible for this incident. The authorities cannot control the public as they don’t listen to the guards. If the tiger had escaped from the enclosure and attacked the youth, then it would have been their responsibility to consider whether or not to kill the tiger but here the youth had entered the tiger’s territory making it difficult for the youth to escape and easy for the tiger to kill. The youth paid a heavy cost of his life and may his soul rest in peace.
