Lion attacks Belgian

A Belgian woman has been attacked by a lion in South Africa. The woman survived, but was badly wounded in the attack. 24-year-old Vicky G. was working as a trainee at the zoo in the town of Midrand, between Johannesburg and Pretoria.

She was feeding the lions when one of them bit her arm.

The zoo’s owner Eddy Van Eck told journalists that Vicky G. had put her hand through the lion’s cage.

“She broke our safety rules and then this happened.”

The Belgian was rushed to the intensive care unit of a local hospital, where she is still receiving treatment.
