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.

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.

Sex Pest Tortoise Single-Handedly Saves His Entire Species From Mass Extinction

This guy here is definitely a lady’s man.

They say in this life you got to do something that would make you proud. That when you look back on your life, you can open a beer, smile, and say: “I did it.” This is exactly what Diego the Tortoise did, except that this action was somewhat legendary.

Why? That is because his species would not be here if not for him. The centenarian was responsible for a very important job in the past, as he was among the remaining males of his species (there were 3 of them) called the Española tortoise. They can be found on the Galapagos Island where their population seemed low, putting themselves in near extinction.
