 Daily Mail     Flipped by the bird: Tiger ends up on its back after trying to leap up and catch feathered prey that had landed in its zoo enclosure

The hilarious moment took place at the Hengdaohezi Siberian Tiger Park in Northeast China during feeding time.

It was captured by US-based photographer Libby Zhang who said that the crowd burst out in a roar of laughter.

The humorous slip came as several birds were thrown by staff in to the tiger enclosure for them to eat.

This is the incredible moment a tiger was sent crashing to the floor after mistiming an attack on a fleet-footed bird. The ferocious feline was chasing what was sure to be dinner when it slipped on the icy surface and lost its footing. As the tiger raced towards the bird, it flew directly upwards forcing the mammal to try and stop dead in its tracks.
