A zoo guide was left in excruciating pain after trying to show off his playing skills with a lion while on duty.
Some tourists had thronged the St. Elizabeth zoo in Jamaica and one of the zoo attendants who was taking the visitors around decided to play with one of the lions in the full glare of the visitors.
Unfortunately, the attempts to entertain and impress the tourists did not go as planned as the attendant’s finger got locked in the mouth of the hungry lion.
After sticking his hand through the chain-linked lion’s cage, the Zoo attendant paid the ultimate pay when his right ring finger was partially bitten off.
According to sources, the event occurred at about 4:22 p.m. on Friday, May 20 and the terrible scene was captured on camera.
