Man Who Had Half His Face Ripped Off By Tiger Reveals His Scars


Animals can be exotic, interesting, lovable, but more importantly extremely dangerous. They are very unpredictable and cause harm to others. Most of us have the ability to keep our distance from them, but there are times where some people find themselves unlucky.

Hashmot Ali was the victim of an unfortunate attack by a tiger. He was left severely disfigured after being savaged by the tiger while fishing on a boat in the forests of Bangladesh.

Since the attack, Ali has confined himself to his village because he does not want to be judged by others around him.

Despite the horrifying attack, Ali has kept his spirits up and the 45 year-old will make an eight-hour journey to the country’s capital Dhaka in search of a life-changing surgery.

Ali emphasizes how important this surgery is to his life ” I desperately need to get my deformed face fixed. I feel it’s very important that I get my looks back to normal. I want to live my life with pride. I don’t want to hide behind this mask anymore. I have done enough hiding, now I want to live with joy with my kids.”


The incident occurred when Ali was working as a fisherman on the lakes. His boat was docked at a forest canal, and he wanted to take a quick nap so he felt refreshed and ready to go. That’s when the tiger attacked him and left his face disfigured.

Since the attack, Ali has had several surgeries in order to try and reconstruct the left side of his face. These surgeries included three unsuccessful attempts at skin grafts.
