Man jumped into zoo lion pen after row with wife
“The man indentified as Suryanarayan Das (45) from Chhatrapur in Ganjam district all of a sudden climbed on the wall and jumped into the lions enclosure housing male lion, Cris, and lioness, Priyanka. We rescued Das within five minutes and rushed him to a hospital.”
Das was mauled. Dr Srikant Mohapatra notes:
“Das regained consciousness in the hospital. He has sustained deep bites on hands and legs. Das has admitted to having a quarrel with his wife before coming to the zoo.”
Perhaps they were rowing over if it were possible for a man to be eaten by lions at the zoo?
