Lion Tamer Gets Mauled By An Aggressive Lion In Front Of Children At A Circus In France

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes, my friends.

A lion tamer was reportedly flown to the hospital in a helicopter after a lion blew a gasket and attacked him in front of an audience full of children in Doullens, France. The 30-year-old trainer suffered from severe throat from the claws of the beast, who will likely be put to death as the circus can no longer trust him.

A mother of a child in the audience said:

It is my six-year-old girl who screams in the video – she cried all night.

Now don’t get me wrong, I loved the circus as a kid. Couldn’t care less about the inhumane captivity of wild animals for the amusement of human beings. Now that I’m a bit older, I understand that maybe they’d rather be in the wild doing lion shit with their lion friends. My future children will probably care less about a circus anyway, they’ll have iPads.
