Lion tops man

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

Here's a series of photos of a real lion-lover! He jumped into the lion's area of a South American zoo. After a slight wrestling match, the man was taken away mostly unharmed.

A marginally more detailed article can be found here. Apparently the guy tried to do a bull-fighter routine.

I seem to recall an article stating that the guy jumped in to prove that he was immortal (and was convinced he'd succeeded when the authorities removed him), but I think that was for a separate incident some time in 2003. This kind of thing happens distressingly frequently.

The story I heard was that God told the man to jump in the lion enclosure, like a Daniel in the Lion's Den sort of thing.
