A man escaped death by the whiskers after he was mauled
by a pack of lions after jumping into their enclosure at
Barcelona Zoo
Justo Jose, 45, remains in intensive care with serious
injuries after he climbed into the lions’ den, where he was
attacked by three of the animals for about half-an-hour
before he could be rescued.
Yesterday afternoon, Jose appeared by the lion enclosure at
the zoo, dressed in military uniform, climbed over railings
and began scaling one of the walls in the enclosure before
being picked up by one of the animals and thrown into a pit.
The 45-year-old was rescued around 30 minutes later,
covered in scratches and bite marks. He was taken to the
city’s Hospital de la Vall D’Hebron where he remains in a
serious but not life-threatening condition.
According to Spanish reports, Jose climbed over fencing to
enter the enclosure as horrified tourists watched on.
Footage of the bizarre incident shows him scaling one of the
enclosure’s walls before being tossed by the leg into a pit by
a lioness.
He emerged some 30 minutes later after fire fighters used
hoses to fight the animals off of him.
Both staff at the zoo and emergency services said that it is
clear that Jose’s stunt was deliberate.
The security system makes it impossible for a person to fall
into the enclosure. It cannot have been by accident, to enter
(the enclosure) you have to want to go in,’ said chief fire
fighter of the Bomberos de Barcelona, Hector Carmona.
