A horrifying old visual of a lion attacking man has again gone viral on social media. In the video, the lion bites the man's hand.
The incident took place at Park Hann, a zoo in Dakar, Senegal. The old footage shows the zoo worker trying to pet the lion and then what happens next is really dangerous.
The video was again surfaced on the Internet and was shared on Twitter.
In the viral clip, as the man takes his hand inside the lion’s cage through the bars, it bites off his hand and traps it in its mouth.
However, the man screams as the lion locks his jaws around his hand in a menacing grip.
Visitors are also starting to panic in the background and some people also throw stones at the lion so that it could free the man.
In an attempt to save himself from the lion, the man hits the wild animal’s head with his left hand, and then he could be able to release his hand from the lion’s jaw.
