Footage shows a Bengal tiger stalking and killing a rare white tiger after a mistake at a zoo.
It is believed that the two tigers were mixed together because a zookeeper at Bannerghatta Biological Park in India accidentally left an enclosure door open.
The tigers, named Amar and Shreyas, then mauled their fellow big cat, named Shreyas. She received injuries to her spine, face and paws, suffering for four days before dying of her wounds on Thursday.
In the horrific footage she can be seen trying to fight them off after they gather around her.
Following the incident, C Jayaram, Principal Chief Conservator of Forests for the government said an investigation has been launched.
He said: "In the meanwhile we have also instituted an inquiry to find out why such a mishap happened.
"It should not be repeated and people who were lethargic must be punished. Both the Bengal tigers are fine and they have been treated."
The white tiger is a genetic mutation of the regular Bengal tiger and they are normally specifically bred.
According to the Indian Tiger Welfare Society, there are only around 200 white tigers left in the world. No wild white tigers have been seen for 50 years due to humans destroying their habitats.
