The tigers are taken care of by some of the local monks, and normally they are very friendly. But when Erik from Sundsvall climbed into a restricted area with nine tigers, some of this friendliness seemed to disappear.
”One of them bit me in my leg, and our guide had to hit it to get it off me. ” the Swede says to Sundsvall newspaper.
He was never scared inside the area, the Swede adds to the newspaper.
“It was probably lucky, because it feels like it could have ended worse if had been scared,” he says.
”The tiger didn’t seem aggressive – but seemed more playful.”
Now, Erik has to take medicin against rabies to make sure that no diseases come as a result of the tiger bite.
