AFP PhotoA tiger that escaped from its enclosure at a zoo in Cologne, western Germany, fatally wounded a woman employee today before being put down, police said.
Investigators said the enclosure had not been properly locked, allowing the feline to get out.
It made its way into a nearby building where it attacked the 43-year-old employee, who died of her injuries.
The zoo director shot and killed the animal.
