Chinese Man Feeds Himself to Tigers in Suicide Attempt
Posted on March 9, 2014
In China, a man attempted to feed himself to tigers, but fortunately (or unfortunately) failed.
Jinhai Yang, 27, was reported to have jumped from a tree to get to the den, and performed animated movements and gestures in hopes of thetigers getting mad and devouring him.
“I asked them to bite me and let them eat my meat, and so I did not fight back,” said Yang, who suffers from mental health issues and is currently unemployed.
Yang suffered scratches, but the Bengal tigers refused to feast on him. The zookeepers tranquilized the tigers before taking Yang out of the den.
He is now being treated in the hospital for depression.
