Shocking footage has emerged of a donkey being pushed into a tigers’ enclosure and eaten alive at a Chinese zoo -- and it’s all due to a bitter dispute over money.

Horrified visitors to the zoo in Changzhou, Jiangsu province, watched on as five men tossed the terrified donkey from the back of a truck into the moat surrounding the enclosure.

In graphic video of the incident, posted on YouTube and viewed over 300,00 times, the donkey can been seen fighting against the men before plunging into the water below.

Shortly after the tigers close in.

According to reports the donkey fought with at least four tigers for up to half an hour before it was killed.

Local Chinese media reported the donkey was the victim of a disagreement over money between investors in the zoo.

Witnesses said a shareholder in the zoo attempted to take some of the animals out of the zoo, including the donkey, a sheep and a goat, in order to sell them but was stopped by security.

The men in the truck then drove up to the tigers’ enclosure and pushed the donkey in, before being stopped by zoo employees from throwing a sheep into the pit.

The Telegraph reported that the zoo said the donkey was thrown into the pit by men "in a fit of rage" and apologised to those who had witnessed the event and promised it would never happen again.

The Paper, a Chinese media organisation, quoted an unnamed investor as saying: "Since we could not have any benefits, we thought why not feed to the tigers, at least we can save on animal feed."

The tigers latch on their prey.

The Sun reported social media users rushed to comment on the clip, describing the act of feeding the tigers a live donkey as "animal abuse".

One person wrote: "I have no problems if it happens in nature, that’s how nature works, but in this case, it is just animal abuse.

"And no, it is not necessary for their health, this is just a bad excuse for the sick show."

Another outraged user said: "An alive donkey being thrown into a cage full of tigers -- sadistic."

While another still raised a valid point: "Other zoos around the world manage to keep tigers perfectly healthy without feeding them live food."

I saw that report .  We wonder about them using ivory and other animal parts for various stupid reasons, leading to poaching elephants etc, and then they do this ???  Not to mention how they treat cats and dogs.
They really are disgusting.
Poor wee donkey. How barbaric.  If they had humanely killed it first, but to push it in alive !Sick
animals before people.

I don't know why this particular event has received so much exposure as this 'live feeding' practice has been going on in many countries including Sth. America & Russia, abhorrent tho' it is Confused
Btw, the Yulin Dog Festival starts in a couple of weeks, despite world wide efforts to stop it Cry
Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!
