Cape Town, Nov 1 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A 30-year-old barman was killed early Sunday morning by three lions in a wildlife resort in South Africa. The man who was said to be drunk was killed the lions after he got too close to the carnivores. The resort owner had to shoot and kill the three animals before the police could remove the victim’s body.

The incident, which was described as horrific by some witnesses, happened in the early hours of Sunday and the resort spokesperson revealed that the victim Jan-Friederick Bredenhand might have been pulled down from a pole he escaped to before being eaten by the stronger animals. The owner had just recently acquired the bar. The owner, Johnny Janse van Rensburg just bought the resort some two weeks ago and the news is not that he wished for.

The spokesperson, Gerda Swart described the action of Bredenhand as “stupid”. She said that, “He climbed the fence around their enclosure and clearly got too close. Since he was drunk he may not have been in sound mind, but it was an incredibly dangerous and stupid thing to do. People who play dangerous games with animals like lions are asking for trouble - and he got it.”

Bredenhand was the food and drinks manager at the resort and the words from the spokesperson seemed quite harsh but in all fairness those words seem right for Bredenhand.
