EAST ASIA - A man leaped into a lion’s den at the East Asia Zoo on Wednesday to try to convert the king of beasts to Christianity, but was bitten in the leg for his efforts.


“Jesus will save you!” shouted the 24-year-old man at two African lions lounging under a tree a few meters away.

“Come bite me!” he said with both hands raised, television footage showed.

One of the lions, a large male with a shaggy mane, bit the man in his right leg before zoo workers drove it off with water hoses, tranquilizer guns, and excrement.

Newspapers said that the lions had been fed a bucket of fish heads earlier in the day, otherwise the man might have been more seriously hurt ... or worse…like being bitten in the directly crotch or getting crapped on by the lions.  “Hey, the king of the beasts isn’t so mighty that he doesn’t need Jesus, too!!” the man said later. 

“AAAAAAA NINBWENZA, habbita beetsanaba!!!! It’s all a part of the circle, the circle of life, himana na himanamana…” said Mufasa.
