Wife beats tiger off husband with ladle
Tuesday 15 February 2011
A woman in northern Malaysia rescued her husband from a tiger by clubbing it with a wooden ladle.
The tiger pounced on Tambun Gediu while he was hunting squirrels in a jungle settlement of the Jahai tribe. His wife, Han Besau, 55, ran out when she heard screams and struck the tiger on the head with the ladle, causing it to flee.
Mr Gediu, who was injured, said he tried to climb a tree but the tiger dragged him down. "I had to wrestle with it to keep its jaws away from me, and it would have clawed me to death if my wife had not arrived."
