LAHORE: A lion has reportedly killed a young gardener at Lahore’s Safari Park, local media reported on Wednesday.
18-year-old Bilal used to work as a gardener at the park. A couple of days ago he had gone missing. Soon after his bones and remaining were found from the safari park, relatives and residents of the area stormed the park vicinity in violent protest against the death.
Later, after watching surveillance camera footage, they came to know that it was the teenager’s fault as he climbed into the fenced area where lions were kept to get grass for feeding animals at the zoo.
The video of the boy’s climbing into the fenced area has though been obtained, however the video of lion’s attack could not be obtained so far. Police are investigating the incident as remaining parts and clothes of the boy have been sent to the lab for forensic analysis.
