I had heard earlier this month that a lion attacked a trainer at The Lion Habitat at MGM Grand. Come to find out, a tourist was shooting video when it all took place!
The attack begins off camera. It appears the male lion decided he’d had enough of the thinner trainer. After the initial attack, the lion and trainer are separated only for the lion to go after him again a bit later in the video.
Here’s a thought – let’s stop thinking that putting a wild animal in an unnatural environment isn’t going to eventually piss it off.
