A shocking video has been released online that shows a tiger attack a young girl at a market in northwest Saudi Arabia.
On the video, the animal’s trainer can be seen walking the tiger around on a leash when the young girl walked over to him. When she got too close, the tiger quickly lunged at the girl, grabbed her with his large paws, and pinned her to the ground.
The girl can be heard screaming just before the short video is cut off.
According to Gulf News, witnesses to the attack said the tiger was being shown off as part of an entertainment program featuring animals.
Gulf News also reported that the girl made it out alive from the attack after the trainer promptly intervened, but he was arrested after the girl’s father filed a lawsuit against him.
A video of the attack can be seen below:
