Three unruly visitors at a zoo in Beijing were filmed throwing rocks at a tiger in its enclosure on Monday, sparking outrage among net users.
The visitors at Beijing Wildlife Park were caught on camera hurling rocks over the tall fence at the tiger, reportedly to make it move.
The zoo has reportedly launched an investigation into the matter, according to Beijing Youth Daily.

Perhaps they should put them in the cage with the tiger and then see how fast it moves!

What a bunch of disgusting pieces of trash! The zoo employees need to watch for people like this and have them criminally charged if they throw anything at the animals!? We are in San Diego, CA where we have the San Diego Zoo and the Safari Park. 10's of 1000's of people go daily and we never have problems like this. If someone was seen doing this, the public would beat them up before the employees even got there!

With the high admission prices that zoos charge today you cannot blame people for wanting to liven up the animals. Zoo managers should do more to ensure the animals entertain the public. I remember the zoos of my youth included elephant rides and chimps tea parties which delighted everybody. Nowadays the animals look bored and lazy and sleep all day.

If they wanted it to move that badly they should have got into the cage with it. It could have chased them around, it would be moving then.
