A man has been left with serious injuries after jumping into a lion enclosure at Barcelona zoo where he was picked mauled by three of the animals.
Dressed in military uniform, the man climbed over railings and began scaling one of the walls in the enclosure before being picked off by one of the animals and thrown into a pit.
Daily Mail reports that 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, the man climbed over fencing to enter the enclosure as horrified tourists watched on.
