Man Survives 3rd Attempt in Tiger Enclosure

Darwin award nominee Sudhir Yadav was again denied after a 3rd jump into a big cat enclosure in India.

Sudhir Yadav, 25, clambered up the iron-mesh, crossed the dry moat and walked up to the white tigeress "Shwetwari" on Sunday, as benumbed visitors at the Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park looked on.

Angry at the intrusion in its "den", the tigress held Sudhir by his neck and began dragging him, it is when the crowd raised an alarm. The animal keepers rescued Sudhir after firing water jets at the tigress, Park Director Rakesh Kumar told PTI today.
