A woman is auctioning a whisker she claims belonged to the tiger that fatally mauled a zookeeper at the Zion Wildlife Gardens in Whangarei.
Dalu Mncube was mauled to death by a rare white Bengal tiger on Wednesday, in front of a group of tourists. It was subsequently shot.
The whisker is for sale on Trademe.
The seller - known as 'Sandee' - says she was given the whisker by Mr Mncube in 2007 as good luck and proceeds from the auction will go to his family.
