A PERTH man has been attacked by a lion, just one day after arriving in South Africa on holiday.

The man was driving through a safari park when the lion reportedly jumped through the window and bit onto his leg.

It only let go after the driver sped off.

The man is recovering in a Johannesburg hospital.

His injuries are not life threatening.” [Perthnow.com]

 

I’ve dreamed of adventure afar

On the plains where the animals are.

But is seeing a lion

In the  wild worth dyin’?

Ask the guy who was mauled in his car.

  • There was on last night's America's Funniest Home Videos (apparently a rerun) of the hazard of a giraffe sticking his or her neck through a car's sunroof and drooling into someone's drink.

    But the elephant house in the zoo still smells like the elephant house.

  • I would always rather go to the zoo -- but especially compared to being a treat for a lion to find in the car!
