His parole officer is going to be all over his ass for this.

Stupid volunteer.

I take it back. Someone else farked up.

But seriously, I used to work at the zoo in my area. All the predators had TWO fences and TWO gates. A lion or tiger was NEVER one gate away from anything. Hell, not even the kangaroos were behind a single gate. Single fence, yes, but double gates.

If a lion mauls you that means it has been successfully rehabilitated. It would never survive in the wild if it approached poachers and then lied down, waiting to be fed.

how the f*ck are these animals getting access to drugs in the first place?

That's the lionest monkey I ever did see.
 
2010-06-03 12:39:33 PM  
I bet that's the last time she ever tries to help a lion.

Pretty sure that's how they check that lions are ready to be released.

That's one funny lookin' lion.
 
2010-06-03 02:13:24 PM  
Stories like this make me sick to my stomach because I'd love to see a video of the attack and that makes me feel like I am a twisted individual.
 
2010-06-03 02:13:52 PM  
Shut up subby.

She was not "eager to show" off anything, idiot. The lion escaped and attacked her.
 
2010-06-03 02:14:22 PM  
wonder what race she was?

Wild animals are wild.

And to answer the question about why there was only one gate. Zimbabwe. Do they do anything right?

FTA: "neglected and injured wild animals"

Is it really considered "neglecting" when its a wild animal. I would call it "avoidance" or "survival".

Whatever race happened, she lost it. The lion was clearly faster.

This. The lion did not go crazy. The lion went lion.

Probably...and did anyone else see the related headlines at the bottom, there's like four other lion attacks. They need to put an obvious tag here. It's Africa.

Sorry for your Lotz.

After reading the headline I was ready to belittle the woman as much as the rest of you. But after RTFA and seeing the pic:

I can't say I wouldn't have lowered my defenses as well... He just looks so harmless. Truly frightening.

Would a gestalt joke be appropriate around here somewhere?

I would guess asshat gets a wild animal for a pet, said asshat gets bored or can't handle said wild animal, and it languishes in a cage.

I said "Zookeeper, you got a lot of damn gall askin' me if I rehabilitated myself"

This lion was behind two gates. Try having someone read it out loud for you.

When I think of "wild" I think of an animal in its natural habitat, not a pet, But i accept your explination.

I jump two gates in the morning
I just two gates at night
I just two gates before I maul the zookeeper
It makes me feel all right.

Human error. The lion will probably be put down because of human error.

"We're still struggling to figure out exactly what happened, since the telephone lines in Zimbabwe are problematic. We simply can't manage to talk to the people in Zimbabwe properly or for long enough to get clear information," said Lubbe.

Christ, that country used to be a modern, prosperous nation that fed most of Africa with its crops.

Fark you, Robert Mugabe.

I'm not a zoologist, but I don't think that's a lion.

I'm guessing of course, but I do have a wild (non domesticated) pet (iguana)

"She had a great love for animals and she cared for neglected and abused lions, cheetahs and leopards. She always had wild animals for pets."


I keep shouting this from soapboxes but nobody listens. There is a proper order you do thing in when developing a country. Number one, get your phone network in order. Number two, consider abused wildlife rehabilitation centers.

Until you take care of number one you should still be abusing wildlife!

Sun's up, uh huh, looks okay
The world survives into another day
And I'm thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me...

There was a mauling at the zoo
Tell me where were you?
You were at home watching your TV
While I was lying on the ground bleeding profusely.
First spot it hit was the jugular
The lion finally got the meal he was looking for.
Red lights flashing, time to retire
After all this blood loss I sure am tired.
