A Ukranian lion tamer has been attacked by his otherwise well-behaved and obedient big-cats.
Ths incident occurred during a performance in the circus and was sent round the world via U Tube (not them they're on strike).
Luckily the lion tamer, Oleksie Pinko (no relation to the fab singer) managed to escape the attack and admitted later in hospital that he forgot the most important thing a lion tamer must do, feed em!
They got hungry that's all and Oleksie admitted that times are hard in the Ukranian circus world. He could only feed his lions dry bones, no meat, a couple of skinny river rats and some apples?
The lions, with their stomachs rumbling and working hard for every morsel of flesh they get decided enough is enough and attacked Oleksie just like any other decent hungry law-abiding lion would do in the out-back.
Maybe it's time to put wild animals back where they really belong and stop treating them like a bunch of brain-dead North Korean soldiers, then such "shocking" events would not happen.
HEALTH WARNING: TAMING HUNGRY LIONS IS DEADLY, FEED EM!
