A man survived being mauled by a pair of tigers on Sunday morning after jumping into their enclosure in a southwestern China zoo, in an alleged attempt to feed them, according to a report by Britain's The Independent.

Witnesses at a zoo in Sichuan province first spotted the man, identified as Yang Jinhai, climbing a tree overlooking the tiger pen before he jumped into the enclosure and began taunting two white male and female Bengal tigers.

"He climbed up the outside of the cage and jumped inside expecting, I assume, that the tigers would pounce on him," eyewitness Feng Lin told local media, according to the report. "Instead the two tigers, a male and a female, seemed more nervous than anything else and the female actually ran off."

Yang's odd behavior scared away the female tiger, but the 27-year-old was attacked by the male tiger.

"He then tried to antagonise the tigers by pulling faces at them," Lin said. "Eventually he was attacked by the male where he was cut after being scratched and bitten before he could be rescued by zoo keepers who fired a tranquilliser dart at the male tiger."

Yang managed to walk away from the animal attack largely unscathed and told reporters he simply wanted to feed the tigers.

Feed them what, you ask? Well, Yang's backpack was reportedly found to be filled with brown rice.
