Fantastic footage of a man being torn limb to limb by lions. (A dummy we think!)
"There's a lesson in this picture - keep close to the trainer when you're in his lion house!" M/S of two men, one is presumably a lion tamer. They are standing in the lion's enclosure. He is explaining to another man how a wooden board facilitates the lions coming out of their cage into the enclosure.
The lion tamer is called away to the telephone, leaving the other man beside the wooden board. C/U of the man holding on to wire fencing saying "I wonder how a fellow would get out of this cage." L/S of lions running around in the enclosure. M/S of lion running towards the camera - he is behind a wire.
L/S of the man holding on to the wire, then suddenly he is mauled by a lion The man screams - a blood curdling cry. Other lions run up and join in. M/S of the lions tearing the body to bits. They fight over a large bone. One of the lions walks around with a leg in his mouth - pleased as punch. Another shot of two lions fighting over a piece of body. It is a feeding frenzy!
Note: After several viewings we are pretty sure that the man at the fence is actually a dummy. Looks pretty realistic though. Very funny! We all watched it twice and had a good laugh.
