TAIPEI, Taiwan - A man leaped into a lions den at the Taipei Zoo on
Wednesday to try to convert the king of beasts to Christianity, but was
bitten in the leg for his efforts.
Jesus will save you! shouted the 46-year-old man at two African lions
lounging under a tree a few meters away.
Come bite me! he said with both hands raised, television footage showed.
One of the lions, a large male with a shaggy mane, bit the man in his right
leg before zoo workers drove it off with water hoses and tranquilizer guns.
Newspapers said that the lions had been fed earlier in the day, otherwise
the man might have been more seriously hurt ... or worse.
