Around 30 individuals, including young children and toddlers were invited into the ring to take photographs with the tiger.
One child even screams: “I’m scared, I’m scared” as his mother tries to place him astride the huge creature.
But a worker, using a microphone, continues to reassure guests to come forward, saying: “How cool is it to sit on a tiger? Perhaps this can keep you away from the devils and bring you well too.”
It is thought that the God of Wealth in China is resonant of a tiger and will bring good fortune to all those who come in contact.
At the end of the video, when the tiger is finally free, it instantly jumps off the platform and retreats to its cage, well away from the stage.
