A shocking video was released to the public over the weekend showing tourists watching in absolute horror as man is mauled to death by lions.
The event took place at a zoo in India when a man decided to jump inside the lion enclosure.
He was immediately attacked by a lioness called Shilpa, who dragged the helpless man by his neck. A male lion, Yuvraj, also joined in the attack, clamping his jaws around the victim’s head.
Dr Kuldeep Kumar, the Punjab Wildlife Chief explained:
“The man climbed the seven-and-a-half-metre high boundary wall right adjacent to the Ghaggar River. Our patrolling team saw him at the top of the boundary wall. They tried to engage him and make him come down. However, he jumped inside.”

“Lionesses have a very curious nature and Shilpa saw something falling from a great height inside their territory. She rushed to take look and found her prey. She instantly attacked the man, caught hold of his neck and then dragged him along.”
