Four days ago, tigers at a wildlife park in Beijing killed one woman and injured another after the pair left their vehicle following an argument. A tiger quickly attacked her and dragged her off, prompting the second woman to leave the vehicle in an attempt to help.
In several similar incidents, humans have come under the attack of an animal, often in unexpected circumstances.
Here we look at 13 pictures of when animals have attacked.
