A lion jumps to the throat of his tamer
The tamer of the Buffalo Circus attacked by a lion during a dressage number. Sunday 7 May 2017 in the city of Doullens in the Somme (France), a tamer finished his number and when he passed the lion under his legs to return to the tunnel, the cat jumped on him. The lion bit and scratched his tamer on the neck. The other lion present did not flinch. The accident took place under the circus tent in front of a hundred spectators. The less than 40-year-old tamer was HELIPORTD to 10 in a very serious condition. The lion should be euthanized. "He attacked." He showed that he was dominating us. "We can no longer work with him" explains a member of the circus.
