A man was rushed to hospital on Tuesday after being bitten on the neck by a tiger at Australia Zoo, run by the family of late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, AFP reports.

The man, believed to be a trainer at the zoo north of Brisbane, was in a serious condition.

"The man is being flown to the Royal Brisbane Hospital in a serious condition," a spokeswoman for RACQ Careflight, an air rescue charity, told AFP.

"He was bitten by a tiger, we believe on the neck."

Reports said the man was found with two puncture wounds to his neck and was breathing and conscious.

The Australia Zoo is a 100-acre facility on Queensland's Sunshine Coast made popular by Irwin, who starred in the hugely successful wildlife documentary series The Crocodile Hunter.
