It has been confirmed that the victim is Paul Goudie, 49, from Hopper's Crossing, a subub of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia.
The animal apparently mauled his belly and both legs, but he is in satisfactory condition at the Phuket International Hospital, but further details are not yet available.
Contacted by The Phuket News, Tiger Kingdom responded by hanging up.
Thung tong Police said that they had received no report of the incident but Kathu District Chief Sayan Chaichanawong has gone to Tiger Kingdom to begin an investigation.
More details when we have them.
