A zookeeper has been mauled by a rampant Siberian tiger as she brought it lunch.
 
Horrifying images showed how the beast savaged Nadezhda Srivastava at Kaliningrad Zoo in Russia.
 
Heroic visitors saved her life by shouting, screaming, throwing stones at the tiger and hurling a table and chairs from a nearby cafe into the compound.
 
This distracted the animal long enough for the 44-year-old - who fought the beast's attempt to kill her - to flee to a safe part of the enclosure.
 
However, the zoo has blamed Nadezhda - whose first name means 'hope' - for the horror on Saturday.
 
A statement said she had violated safety rules as she took food to the big cat because it was not properly isolated in a safe area before she entered its compound.
 
"According to preliminary information obtained during our internal investigation, the reason for the tragedy was the violation of security regulations by the employee while conducting her duties," the zoo said.
 
Ekaterina Mikhailova, the press secretary of Kaliningrad Zoo, explained: "The safety rules were violated while working at the facility.
 
"Now the task is to find out why an experienced employee could perform such a violation."
 
Her husband Dr. Nitesh Srivastava, a doctor from India working in Russia, said today his wife was "stable" in intensive care but had "multiple fractures" and thanked well-wishers for their support.
