A Chilean man stripped naked and jumped into the lion enclosure in an attempt to make the lions eat him. Resulting in both African lions being put down by the zookeepers.
The young man, who has mental health issues, jumped inside the cage, took his clothes off and began to poke the animals. He left suicide notes inside his clothes first. Zoo personnel tried to use sedative darts and water to scare the lions but once the lions had bitten the man’s neck they made the decision to use live ammunition. 2 of the 3 lions were shot and killend while a third was locked away in a lateral zone.
