A Zoo guide was left in premium pain after he lost his finger to a Lion.

The overzealous zoo attendant’s finger was bitten off by a lion at an attraction in St Elizabeth, one of Jamaica’s largest parishes.

According to reports, the incident occurred on Friday, May 20, at about 4:22 pm.

Eyewitnesses who filmed the unfortunate incident revealed that the zoo was coming to an end when the zoo attendant in an apparent effort to impress visitors, attempted to pet or tease the lion.

The Zoo attendant then paid the ultimate price as his right ring finger was partially bitten off after he stuck his hand through the chain-linked lion’s cage.

Now the lion has tasted human blood, will want more and too dangerous. Needs to be sent into the deep Bush or we risk the lives of visitors and workers

Now you have a story to tell your kids, people act foolishly. If you like lie and say you were helping Samson to fight lion.
