Campaigners launch fight to save tiger that mauled zookeeper, 33, to death from being ‘put down’

An online campaign (top right) has been launched by animal lovers who have called for the tiger who killed Rosa King, 33, at Hamerton Zoo (bottom right) in Cambridgeshire, to be spared as fears grow it could be put down. Cambridgeshire Police have confirmed the tiger has not been harmed and an investigation has been launched by¬†Huntingdonshire District Council, which grants the zoo a licence to keep exotic animals. Miss King (pictured with a tiger at the zoo), 33, was ‘inspirational’ and enjoyed working with her ‘beloved cats’ at the zoo, friends said. Meanwhile her heartbroken mother Andrea said earlier today her daughter was dedicated to her job and ‘it was something she always loved’.
