Video: The fearless crane that fought off tigers inside China zoo
Hangzhou (China), May 23: The mighty isn't the winner always, the determined is. This is what a crane recently proved at the Fuyang Wildlife Park in Hangzhou in China proved.
The bird fell into a tiger enclosure in the zoo but fought two tigers that tried to make a good feast out of it. Another tiger also saw it but wasn't much interested to hunt it down.
Shocked tourists captured the fearless crane standing its ground as the predators encircled it into the corner of the enclosure. It not only survived the threat but fought them off by flapping its wings hard. It even chased the big cats away.
Zoo-keepers said the crane was blown away by strong winds into the tiger enclosure through a hole in the fence. They said the bird received minor injuries.
It was eventually rescued by the keepers from the tiger enclosure.
