A NAKED man who jumped into the big cat enclosure at a Chilean zoo in a desperate ‘suicide bid’ survived – but only after the lions attacking him were shot dead.
Santiago authorities confirmed the two beasts were killed as they mauled the 20-year-old who had broken into their compound early on Saturday.
The man, who has not been named, was accidently hit with a tranquiliser as zookeepers frantically tried to put the lions to sleep.
Director of the city’s Metropolitan Zoo Alejandra Montalba said the park was crowded with visitors at the time of the incident.
The young man broke into the enclosure, took off his clothes and jumped into the middle shocking families who witnessed the attack.
