A man has died after suffering a tiger bite to the throat at a zoo in Copenhagen, Danish Police have confirmed.
The 21-year-old was discovered dead early this morning by a zookeper.
Police believe he climbed a low wall surrounding the den which contained three Siberian Tigers and entered a moat when inside the enclosure.
He was bitten on the thigh, chest, face and throat.
Lars Borg, a spokesman for the Copenhagen police, said investigators could not rule out suicide.
"He has been in the water and the animals must have seen that and attacked him," Mr Borg said.
Police have not released the man's identity but said he was a foreign national with a Danish residence permit.
Investigators are studying CCTV footage to establish how the man entered the park.
Steffen Straede, manager of the Copenhagen Zoo , said it is the first time in the zoo's 152-year history that such an incident has occured.
"If a person really wants to get in (there), we cannot prevent it from happening," he said.
He also said that there were no plans to reassess its security or to put the tigers down and a psychologist will talk to staff who found the body.
The park opened as usual this morning.
