TO Nandankanan Zoological Park in Bhubaneswar, Orissa, India.  Zoo assistant director K L Purohit is telling media what happened:

“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?
