Rare tiger kills prospec­tive mate in Lon­don Zoo

Hindustan Times (Amritsar) - - World -

LON­DON: For ten days, the Lon­don Zoo kept its newly ar­rived male Su­ma­tran tiger Asim in a sep­a­rate en­clo­sure from Me­lati, the fe­male tiger who was sup­posed to be­come his mate. On Fri­day, zool­o­gists put the two in the same en­clo­sure - and al­most in­stantly Asim at­tacked and killed Me­lati. It marked a shock­ing end to hopes that the two tigers would breed as part of a tiger con­ser­va­tion pro­gramme.
