Horrifying moment a lion tamer is mauled to death during live show in Egypt


Shocking footage has emerged showing the moment a circus trainer was mauled by a lion during a live show in Egypt.
Trainer Islam Shaheen, 35, was filmed motioning at a lion with a stick during the performance in Alexandria when suddenly, a third lion lunged at the trainer, biting him in the neck .
Other trainers rushed to try and help him, by poking the lion with sticks. He was rushed to Andalusian Salam hospital but died later from his injuries.


Mohammed Mustafa, the circus spokesman, said the attack happened as the lion was in the mating season and so behaving erratically.
