  • Horror at London Zoo: Female tiger Melati is brutally mauled to death by potential breeding mate just MINUTES after the victim was introduced to her Danish date for the first time

    London Zoo's beloved female tiger Melati has been brutally mauled to death by her potential new mate while the two beasts were being introduced.

    The zoo says 10-year-old Melati died on Friday during her first encounter with Asim, a seven-year-old male who was shipped in from Denmark last month.

    The two tigers had been kept in adjoining enclosures for 10 days so they could get used to one another, but their first meeting 'quickly escalated into a more aggressive interaction.'
