A captive-bred Siberian tiger attacked and killed a man Monday in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.

Jin Shijun, a tour bus driver at the China Hengdaohezi Feline Breeding Center in Hailin City, was attacked as he checked a tour bus that had become bogged in snow, a spokesman for the center said Wednesday.

The tiger pounced on Jin before dragging him into the forest. When workers found Jin he was already dead.

Built in 1986, the China Hengdaohezi Feline Breeding Center is home to about 1,000 Siberian tigers. It is the world's largest Siberian tiger breeding base.
