The video shows a tiger at the Dublin Zoo trot over to a sleeping tiger and whack it with its paw. The tiger springs up with a fierce roar and swipes angrily at the big cat who tried to wake it. The tiger immediately retreats as the recently woken up tiger continues to charge at it angrily.
A little child watching the exchange from behind the safety of a glass wall is sent scrambling and calling to his mother.
