The deputies of the Collier County sheriffs were attempting to kick the enclosure of the eight-year-old Malayan tiger named Eko so that he frees the zoo employee animal to free the worker.

The deputy – who thought they were out of options – fatally shot the animal.

The investigation stated that River Rosenquist was to clean the restrooms and gift shop when he wandered into an unauthorized area and stuck his hand into the tiger’s enclosure in order to pet or feed the animal.

The tiger seized his arm and tried to pull him into the enclosure which made the authorities take action.
