British zoo evacuated after tiger kills trainer

Hamerton Zoo in Cambridgeshire, England, had to be evacuated on May 29 after a tiger killed a zookeeper.

The zoo, 80 miles north of London, was full of schoolchildren on a holiday.

Everyone in the zoo was evacuated without incident.

Witness Jeff Knott said the staff was very professional and the visitors departed the zoo “in a very calm manner—no running, shouting or anything similar.”

The crowd was told only that a serious incident had occurred.
