NEWSLINK: Hamerton Zoo killer big cat 'was rare Malayan tiger'

Zoo bosses say a big cat that killed its keeper was a rare male Malayan tiger.

Rosa King, 33, died at Hamerton Zoo Park in Cambridgeshire on 29 May when she and the tiger, which the zoo said was called Cicip, entered an enclosure.

The zoo, which has been shut since the attack, is due to reopen on Friday.

It comes after it passed a licence and public safety inspection by Huntingdonshire Council.

The park's director Andrew Swales said the decision to reopen had been taken "in consultation with the police, our staff and Rosa's family".
