USDA: No wrongdoing in deadly Metro Richmond Zoo tiger attack

Posted: Updated:
CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

There won't be any charges filed against the Metro Richmond Zoo, following November's deadly tiger attack.

NBC12 obtained video of one Bengal tiger killing another right in front of zoo-goers and children. The mauling happened on November 30.

That prompted the USDA to send an inspector to the Chesterfield zoo.

A USDA spokesman said the inspector found no violations and the zoo has been cleared of any wrongdoing.
