This is the weirdest story we've heard all week...

It looks like the zoo in China’s Henan Province could do with making it's attractions a little more interesting.

This tourist clearly wasn't impressed with the entertainment on offer, as he jumped straight off the chairlift and into the tiger enclosure "looking for some excitement."


The tigers reportedly started circling around the man, but zoo keepers rushed in and got him out safely.

Speaking late of his decision to jump, he claims that he was disappointed he ‘didn’t do a good somersault’.

"‘I was looking for something exciting so I jumped" he says, "but the somersault was not as successful as I expected.’

The rescuing zoo worker simply said "I don’t know what to say to him.’ He was later questioned by the police - and probably everyone else at  the zoo...
