Lions among several creatures have been removed from their natural habitat to entertain people behind bars in a zoo or are tamed for the same in circuses. But can these glorious beasts used to being kings in the wild really be controlled always?

A keeper at a circus in France learnt this the hard way as a lion went berserk inside the ring and caught him by the throat. Horrified people in the audience rushed from their seats as the tamer was dragged around the ring by the big cat.

 

The area was then filled with smoke to distract the lion as the man moved to safety. He underwent a successful surgery and is now recovering, and is in shock as he raised and trained the lion himself.
