Two Lions Killed Case 1: Santiago Metropolitan Zoo May 21, 2016
A man around 11.30am scaled a roof, intentionally climbed over a fence and forced his way into the lion enclosure before removing all of his clothes. This man according to reports was trying to commit suicide, as he had a suicide note present in the clothes he discarded. The lions initially ignored the man until he began taunting them and urging their attack. Zookeepers turned a hose on the animals and then fired a tranquiliser gun at one of the lions but hit the man in the neck. As the lions set upon the man, a zookeeper fired open rounds killing tow of the three lions. The man was taken away to hospital in a critical condition.
