TAIPEI (Reuters) - A man leaped into a lion's den at the Taipei Zoo on Wednesday to try to convert the king of beasts to Christianity, but was bitten in the leg for his efforts.



"Jesus will save you!" the 46-year-old man shouted at two African lions lounging under a tree a few meters away.


"Come bite me!" he said with both hands raised, television footage showed.


One of the lions, a large male with a shaggy mane, bit the man in his right leg before zoo workers drove it off with water hoses and tranquilizer guns.


Newspapers said that the lions had been fed earlier in the day, otherwise the man might have been more seriously hurt ... or worse.

I'll do my best to add a little life to the doom and gloom then!

Although my posts aren't always frequent. I'll do my best to bring more cheer to livejournal.
