"It was not clear what provoked the animal."

The reason is probably in the article itself.

Anyways, hope all get well soon.

Probably objected to being dressed in "cute" frilly pants and booties.

It was not clear what provoked the animal.

How about being a captive wild beast for starters?

7 ( +11 / -4 )

Good for the lions.

It was not clear what provoked the animal...

As noted, being 'chained' and 'groomed' may have had something to do with it.

Lock that lion up!!

It was not clear what provoked the animal.

If someone locked me up just to oogle at me I'd want to take a swipe at them as well..

Well I could be wrong but mauling is typically what Lions tigers and.bears do...OH MY!

chained in a cage

I bet I can figure it out.

Handlers are not so sensitive after all. They can't tell when an animal is uneasy? Strange.

As others have said - it seems pretty obvious ! Lions are not meant to be cooped up in a small cage and chained on top of it ! The zoos are already bad enough but kept in a small cage ?

Pics on the idiot box show a pretty grim looking location, like a large version of a nasty pet store......

TV news reported that the lion has just been washed.

Apart from this being something that just doesn't happen in the wild, what temperature was it in Chiba yesterday? I'd maul someone for doing this to me in an exposed cage.

It doesn't explain ten years of not attacking the handlers.

Belief that a wild animal is any thing but wild. Belief that an ambush predator programmed to wait until the time is right is safe. Lunacy.

Lock that lion up!!

Fun fact haters - the lion was already locked up. Do you even sarcasm, bro?

Dan, I got your sarcasm. Good one.

A certain side of me thinks, "Good for the lion."

The lion is only acting as a lion.

A company named "Shonan" based in Chiba? LOL
