    ''Evolve or die''

    A Bengal tiger has killed a lion at the Ankara Zoo in Turkey after it entered the lion's enclosure via a hole in the fence that separated the two animals.

    According to a statement from the Agriculture Ministry on Monday, the lion was seriously injured by the tiger's claw in the attack, which took place on 4 September 2010, and could not be saved.

    It has been reported by local media that the tiger severed the lion's jugular vein in a single stroke.

    Zoo officials have denied media reports that the tiger had broken down the fence during the incident and the zoo remains open for visitors.

    This isn't the first time questions have been raised about the zoo's security - it was reported two years ago that a boa snake had escaped from its cage, causing fear in the nearby residential area.

    Six tigers and two lions remain at the zoo.
