One of the world's most famous tiger tamers has been mauled to death by his four big cats as he prepared for a show at a circus in Italy.

Ettore Weber, 61, was mauled to death around 7.30pm on Thursday night at the Circo Orfei - Italy's best-known circus - in the countryside near Bari.
Weber was rehearsing for his act when one of the tigers knocked him down before the other three pounced on him and mauled him to death.

The tigers then 'played' with his body for around 30 minutes in front of stunned medics who were unable to do anything to help, La Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno reported.

Weber's fellow performers also tried to drive the animals away but to no avail, according to Corriere.

Medics say that Weber suffered a series of serious injuries, including severe trauma to the spine.

It is not clear what will become of the tigers now that their trainer is dead.

The attack happened around an hour before Thursday's show was due to take place.

And here's the dummy who picked "getting mauled to death by pussy" as the perfect way to go. I really should start reading life's fine print .

Kinda like that dude from Subway who thought he was Michael Jackson famous. Couldn't moonwalk his way out of that one now could he? Is he dead yet? No not Michael, the other pervert who wasn't famous enough to hear about?

Went from endorsing sandwiches to becoming the key ingredient in em... With extra mayo. That'd make anyone suicidal. Im betting he's dead... It was Jared with the shoeless in the cell!

I'm soooooooooooooooo good at Clue.

I have to agree. I had that cat pegged as the ringleader the second I saw the image.


I like that they were good enough to try and provide a 30 minute show by playing with the body for half an hour. You know these Showbiz types it gets in their blood and they just got to perform

I have a cat that loves to play and torture his captured mouse, lizard etc.

I hate seeing his sly *go ahead and wobble away little half dead mouse.
As soon as it starts to get 2-3 feet away, he jumps up half frantic half demented with pleasure and and grabs it again.

The second I read the title my mind went right there. Hilarious.

I don't feel a bit sorry for this dude.
He makes these cats perform out of fear. They finally said *we're not doing it anymore.
