A man who beat security protocols to jump into a lion’s cage in South Africa was torn into pieces on Tuesday, a government official said.
Footages from security camera showed the man paying the entrance fee and entering the zoo at around 9 a.m. (0700 GMT), local government spokeswoman Thandy Matebese told the Daily Dispatch newspaper.
“We suspect that he used the corner of the security wall and the fence of the lion’s enclosure to climb up and jumped over the fence,” Matebese said.
“His corpse was discovered around 10am (0800 GMT) when it was time to feed the lions.”
