A 40-year-old man was seriously injured today at Kolkata’s Alipore Zoo after he was attacked by a lion. The man, identified as Gautam Guchait, had jumped inside the lion’s enclosure; officials believe he was drunk.

Before he could be rescued, he was already attacked by the lion, and he suffered injuries on the shoulder and neck. “Dressed as a sadhu”, he had bought a ticket and entered the zoo, officials said.

Alerted by other visitors, when zoo workers reached the enclosure, he was found lying on the ground. The man “somehow managed to climb the boundary wall before jumping over the two netted-boundaries to get inside the enclosure. The lion, which was out of its cage, attacked the man. He has been very badly injured,” an official said.
