N.C. boy, 10, fatally mauled by aunt's tiger
A 10-year-old boy was shoveling snow near the fence that enclosed his aunt's 400-Bengal tiger. The tiger pulled him through an opening used by the family's dog to enter the enclosure and play with the cat. The tiger mauled the young boy. In response, the boy's uncle shot and killed the tiger in an attempt to save the boy, but it was too late and the boy died.
