- A group of children on a school trip were witness to the shocking moment a gigantic Benghal Tiger attacked his handler at Pensacola Interstate Fair, Florida
- They watched in awe as the beast dragged the hapless woman across it’s cage ignoring her commands
- The tiger was finally subdued when the trainer’s colleague jumped into the cage and saved the woman from what could have been certain death or worse
This footage captures the moment a 2-year-old Benghal Tiger by the name of Gandhi turned on his trainer right in front of a large group of children.
The shocking incident happened during a private show for a group of children on a school trip to the Pensacola Interstate fair, which takes place in Florida.
In the video the beast knocks the female trainer to the ground and begins to gnaw, claw and drag the woman around its cage right before the eyes of the children, mostly consisting of preschoolers and first graders.
The adults can be heard instructing the children to face the other way, but the curious youngsters can’t keep their eyes off from the horror is being unveiled before them.
Meanwhile, the trainer, still in the jaws of the tiger, is trying to command the beast to stop. However, it seems the tiger has no intention of stopping, so the woman starts screaming for her fiancé and fellow tiger handler to help her.
The man is seen rushing into the cage to her aid. He has on him a long thin rod, which he uses to stop the out-of-control predator.
Gandhi’s jaws part and he meekly retreats back to his cage.
Since the terrifying incident the tiger shows at the fair have been cancelled for the time being.
