    Dont give them any ideas...

    But honestly, how many people would be stupid enough to do something like that? Not many (hopefully) so surely there cant be overly many examples of undertrained people sneaking up on lions trying to beat them in unarmed combat.

    It makes me wonder what happened to the lions.

    Did they have to treat them differently after that? Or did they just chalk it up to: "That guy was a moron."

    I'd imagine the 300lb killing machines would be different after learning that the pink things on two legs that run around and talk too much make tasty snacks.

    There was a similar story here where a guy at the zoo decided he wanted to be "one with the gorillas" so he stripped down to his skivvies and jumped into the gorilla enclosure.

    He didn't make it though, and got stuck in the protective moat that surrounds the enclosure. While he was trashing around trying to get out of there the zoo handlers opened up the feeding area and coaxed the gorillas in with carrots or whatever, and got them safely inside where they couldn't hurt the nutcase.

    Then the police jumped in, beat the guy's ass and then arrested him.

    Best part?

    The gorillas had no idea he was even in the pen with them.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.

    Those lions were a bunch of pussies though they ganged up on him. I'd take on a bear, at least it'd fight me one on one. I would maybe allow myself a knife.

    I think they put the lion down once they get the taste of human flesh. I belive that's what they did with the tiger that attacked Roy, So I guess the instructor was right, because he might have ended up getting the lion killed.

    The fact that the lions avoided his hands proves that they contained the deadly.

    Obviously, it's de-fanged and de-clawed. But I would love to see a video of a karate guy running out to a healthy bear in the same manner this guy did to try to attack it.
