A man got exactly what he bargained for after he made a series of gestures poking fun at a lion caged in a zoo.
The man was having all the fun and mocking the lion by teasing him with his fingers while other tourists filmed the process. The lion meanwhile got offended and decided to teach him a bitter lesson.
While he was still at it; teasing the lion by inserting his fingers inside the cage and running it across its face, the lion had its opportunity by grabbing his hands.
He started screaming but there was no way anyone could help him. He started pulling his fingers clutched into the savage mouth of the lion and with recourse to the wire mesh, he tried unsuccessfully to free himself.
Fortunately, he got away but we guess he lost a finger or two- something that will serve as a subtle reminder never to throw caution to the wind in his life again.
