A zoo worker in Mexico died after a caged tiger mauled his hand through a fence during feeding time.
Jose de Jesus, 23, died of a heart attack after refusing to allow doctors to amputate his badly mangled hand, The NY Post reported.
The horrific video published by The Mirror UK shows De Jesus reaching through a chain link fence to pet the tiger when it suddenly turned and clamped its jaws down on his hand.
De Jesus screamed in pain as the tiger mauled his hand at the zoo in Periban, western Mexico. The next scene shows a large pool of blood outside the tiger's enclosure.
The tiger's owner released the video footage to show the zoo worker was at fault. The owner also kept a lion and a crocodile at the zoo.
The owner said he paid for De Jesus' medical bills and will pay for his funeral services.
Mexican officials are trying to determine whether the owner had permission to keep the exotic animals at the zoo.
Mexican authorities arrested two people in connection with the grisly murders of a lesbian couple from El Paso, Texas.
Police arrested a 25-year-old man and 24-year-old woman and charged them with femicide. Their names were not released to the public.
Nohemi Martinez (left) and Yulizsa Ramirez (right), both 28, were killed while visiting family in Ciudad Juárez, according to reports.
Their body parts were stuffed in trash bags and scattered along a highway about 17 miles apart from each other in the neighborhoods of San Agustin and Jesus Carranza.
Authorities say Martinez and Ramirez, who were married in June 2021, were lured to a home in the town of San Isidro on Jan. 15.
Evidence shows they were tortured, shot and dismembered inside the home. Their body parts were discovered by police in garbage bags scattered along a highway in two towns, according to KSMS-TV.
The two women were parents to three children who are now orphans in El Paso, Texas.
Activists organized the March for Affective-Sexual Diversities in Ciudad Juárez and demanded justice for the "terrible and brutal crime of two lesbian women".
The marchers carried signs that read: "Lesbofobia" and "Justicia para Yulizsa y Nohemi (Justice for Yulizsa and Nohemi)."
"It is a femicide and, surely, a hate crime due to lesbophobia, since it cannot be otherwise given the cruelty and viciousness with which they were murdered," the group said in a statement to El Diario.
However, Mexican authorities determined the murders were not hate crimes, according to the Washington Post.
The murders are "linked to the economic activity that both victims carried out and with the people they related to in that environment," the attorney general's office said in a statement to The Post.

An Atlanta man says he and his fiancée are being held captive in a Mexico hospital because they can't afford to pay his $14,000 medical bill.
Stephen Johnson was vacationing with his fiancée, Tori Austin, on a Carnival cruise ship headed to Cancun.
Two days into their trip, Johnson fell ill and was diagnosed with diabetes, and infection/inflammation of the pancreas and kidneys.
Ship doctors recommended Johnson seek emergency treatment at a hospital on the mainland. Johnson was rushed to a hospital where he was in intensive care for three days.
Because Johnson and Austin don't have insurance, the hospital demanded payment via cash or credit card on the spot.
Johnson is still too sick to be discharged, but hospital administrators told the couple that, if he is discharged, he can't leave the hospital until he pays.
Austin shared photos of Johnson in a hospital bed with Good American America. "We were physically assaulted by the administrative staff," Austin told GMA from her fiancé's hospital room. "They were physically pushing on him!" she added, before adding that hospital workers "locked the windows".
Austin told GMA that she offered to pay $7,000 in cash upfront and she was willing to work out a payment plan for the remainder of the bill.
Johnson told CBS46 that he is in "hell" and that he and Austin have no idea when they will be allowed to leave the premises.
They are pleading for help from the U.S Embassy and Consulates in Mexico.
Update: Tyler Perry has offered to pay the hospital bills for Stephen Johnson. According to Channel 2 Action News, Perry was watching Good Morning America on Friday morning and saw the couple's plight.
Channel 2's Justin Gray had been texting with the couple when he got a call from Perry offering to help. Johnson and his fiancée are on their way home to Sandy Springs, Ga.
