(Newser) Who's the king of the jungle? An old question about inter-species conflict has, unfortunately, been answered. A tiger killed a lion at a zoo in Turkey after finding a gap in the fence that separated them, the BBC reports. Zoo officials say the tiger killed the lion by severing its jugular vein with a single swipe of his paw. The zoo has six tigers and two remaining lions, and insists it is still safe to visit.

Sad that the two of them didn't just make some sweet baby ligers.
