Regulation or professional guidance may still change this though.
Hamerton Zoo Park has said that after extensive consultation and the support of Rosa’s family, they will not put down the tiger that killed her.
In a statement the zoo said: “We have received a number of enquiries from members of the public asking about the tiger following last week’s incident.
“After extensive consultation with the staff at the zoo, we have decided not to put down the tiger. This decision has been fully supported by Rosa’s family.
“We are awaiting the findings of the investigation to fully understand what happened before we take further action on this matter. If we receive regulatory or professional guidance to the contrary, we will review our position.”
