Circus Trainer Gets Brutally Attacked By Lions In Front of Shocked Live Audience

Terrified kids and parents witnessed the anger of lions.

Going to the circus might sound like a good idea for a fun day out with the kids. However, parents and children who went to a circus in Lviv, Ukraine were left terrified after two lions angrily attacked their trainer during the show.

This is totally not what you’re expecting to see when you go watch a wholesome circus.

Circus trainer Oleksiy Pinko was savagely mauled by two lions in front of the audience.

Before the attack, the live audience watched as the circus trainers performed their act. The lions willfully obeyed them and performed their tricks. However, one of the animals aggressively jumped towards Oleksiy Pinko, a trainer, knocking him over.

A water hose was used to scare the animal away.

Unfortunately, things didn’t end there yet.

The trainer got back up on his feet and started hitting the animal with a stick which, apparently, angered it even more.

The lion pinned Pinko to the ground and other circus crew came to his rescue.

In response, another lion also started attacking them.

As you can imagine, the audience were completely shocked as they watched everything unfold onstage. The children screamed in fright while some of the parents rushed off the place, covering the eyes of their little ones.

Watch the video here and see how it all happened:

According to a report posted online by The Sun, Oleksiy Pinko was taken to the hospital for an emergency surgery. Fortunately, he recovered from the injuries caused by the gruesome attack.

I guess it’s really best that we leave wildlife alone?

Some of you may remember that years ago, Netherlands started implementing a law that prohibits circuses to use wild animals in the country. Effective 2015, Netherlands has made it illegal for circuses to use bears, elephants, giraffes, and, yes, lions.

Woman Performs Surgery On A Butterfly With Broken Wings – And It Worked!

Despite having no medical expertise, she was able to perform a successful wing transplant.

Monarch butterflies are perhaps one of the most interesting species, with wings that seem to be a work of art. They can only live from two weeks to five months the most. Apparently, there was a certain butterfly on a brink of death. It basically came into this world with a defected wing.

Romy McCloskey vowed to raise three monarch butterflies, but one of these creatures had a problem on its wings. Determined he could save it, Romy turned her home into a mini operating room. She even used common household items in performing a wing transplant. Yes, that's right – a wing transplant!

What is more interesting is the fact that Romy had no medical expertise whatsoever. She was a “professional costume designer and master hand embroiderer,” though. Still, she managed to make the operation successful.

Scroll down and check out the photos to see how the surgery went!
