KIEV (Reuters) – A man shouting that God would keep him safe was mauled to death by a lioness in Kiev zoo after he crept into the animal’s enclosure, a zoo official said on Monday.
“The man shouted ‘God will save me, if he exists’, lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions,” the official said.
“A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery.”
The incident, Sunday evening when the zoo was packed with visitors, was the first of its kind at the attraction. Lions and tigers are kept in an “animal island” protected by thick concrete blocks.
I like my title better. heh
So Ben sent me the link and says:
Ben: *reading from a work email thread about it* How do you think the lion knew where his carotid artery was?
Me: DUH!! God told him!!
He PROVED His existance!! And apparently He thinks that Darwin was on to something…
