Chengdu Zoo rehearses escaped “tiger” response
June 2nd, Sichuan Chengdu Zoo, a tranquilized “tiger” being carried away by workers, as a caged Chinese tiger watches through the glass. That day, the Chengdu Zoo conducted a escaped dangerous animal training drill/exercise. The training exercise simulated 2 Siberian Tigers escaping from their cages, with zoo workers working together with forestry police conducting an emergency response.
Startled, the tranquilized “tiger” rushed towards the quarantining human wall, but to ensure the safety of personnel, the forestry police was forced to open fire and shoot it dead.

Comrades…there is a situation…a tiger has escaped from the zoo!
The Chengdu Zoo today held an escaped dangerous animal response drill/exercise. One zoo worker played the role of the escaped tiger, while other workers and security successfully tranquilized him. The zoo hopes to use this exercise to increase the zoo workers’ capabilities in responding to emergencies, safeguarding the safety of visitors.

The last picture is the highlight.
Comments from NetEase:
Forget tigers, unarmed humans wouldn’t be able to defeat even a 40kg wolf/wild dog.
Seeing that police officer hold that gun so seriously, I was covered in tears of laughter!
This must be a show released in conjunction with June 1st [Children's Day], right? Exercises are conducted like this?
Our country’s drills/exercises are all just shows/performances.
Qie, children these days aren’t that easy to fool.
Tigers are endangered animals, so if one escaped, they’d just kill it? That creative?
So ridiculous/stupid, fuck.
Comments from Liba:
Idiots, a bunch of idiots, are they just making a joke?
The Chengdu Zoo officials should probably go have their intelligence checked.
That real tiger must’ve been crushed to see his fellow tiger being carried away…
Are they trying to teach a lesson to the real tiger?
You be good and stay in that cage.
Come out and we’ll shoot you to death.
Ai-yo, LOL, I bet my coworkers think I’m an idiot, staring at the computer convulsing with laughter.
I’ve seen such exercises at Japanese Zoo and they’re like this too, where one person plays the role of the escaped animal, eventually tranquilized.
There’s nothing wrong with this kind of exercise/drill! Although it looks a little ridiculous, it serves its purpose.
That real tiger must be watching and thinking: A bunch of SBs.
Haha, LOL, feels like it was done for the real tiger to see.
