The video is indeed terrifying. But talking about the attack the trainer told Metro UK, "The lion jumped at me and bit me - but thank God, not on my neck. He immediately let me go. My back, arm and leg were hurt. The most important thing for me is to see children in the audience. Of course, I was covered in blood, but I asked everybody to calm down, and started the performance all over again, from the beginning." He said the animals attacked him because they were unsettled after arriving at a new destination. This incident has once again brought up the issue of banning wild cats to be made a part of the circus and such shows. It was fortunate that the trainer was able to get the lions under control but in such case, the issue could result in something untoward.
