Man Killed By Lion While Trying To Steal Rare White Cub From Zoo

Ghana – On Sunday, a man who scaled a 20-foot fence was fatally mauled by a lion at Ghana’s Accra Zoo. It is presumed that the middle-aged man may have been attempting to steal one of the rare white lion cubs inside of the enclosure, reports the New York Post.

A press release from the state’s forestry commission indicates that the man died from injuries sustained in the attack and that the lions inside of the enclosure did not escape.

Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources Benito Owusu Bio explained why the attack happened, explaining:

“The lions have cubs so if you come too close they may feel you are trying to take away their babies.”

The rare, white lion cubs have been a popular attraction for visitors at the zoo.

  1. Justice! Hope it was a gruesome, long, slow and excruciatingly painful death. Scum like this need to be eradicated, one way or the other.

  2. I say thank you to the lioness for she got rid of scum who would have taken her cub. I would have done the same thing if someone tried to steal my daughter when she was a baby. i am glad they are both safe and he will never attempt to steal another cub or other animals.

  4. Glad these zookeepers and authorities were sensible enough to lay the blame where it was deserved—on the man— and didn’t punish the lions for his death.

  5. Please don’t let them kill the mamma for protecting her babies. He was the one who put himself there for nefarious purposes. Babies need their mom. Send them to a sanctuary
