An endangered Sumatran tiger has been killed by another tiger at London Zoo.
Male tiger Asim was brought to the zoo from a safari park in Denmark 10 days ago in attempts to be “the perfect mate” for long-term resident Melati.
After spending time apart in the tiger enclosure to get used to the new surroundings – the two were introduced to each other earlier.
But tensions “quickly escalated”, became “more aggressive” and Melati died in a fight, the zoo said.
