Yesterday in Santiago, Chile, a 20-year-old now identified as Franco Luis Ferrada Roman, stripped naked in a zoo and jumped into a lion’s enclosure and began to yell things about Jesus to the wild animals, to the horror of onlookers which included children.
At first, the animals didn’t attack him, but they later pounced on him and savagely mauled him. To save the man’s life, the zookeepers had to shoot two lions dead.
Speaking with the press later, the director of the zoo, Alejandra Montalva, said:
“We believe that this person entered as a visitor and paid for his ticket. Later he trespassed into an area where the public are not normally allowed and we understand that he forced the roof of the lion’s enclosure.
It was from there that he jumped, took off his clothes and started to attract the lions.
The zoo has an established protocol because people’s lives are very important to us.”
