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
“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.
