Nov 1 (THAINDIAN NEWS) According the the Sun, three lions at a South African WIldlife Resort killed and ate a barman, after he became intoxicated at a party and decided to “play” with the animals.

Thirty year old Jan-Friederick Bredenhand was said to have been working at the resort for only one month when he attended a party which was given at the tourist reserve. He did not work with the animals at all, but was a food and rinks manager, so he had no reason at all to be in the pen with the lions. Police believe that he was drunkenly attempting to play with them.

Tourist Veluchia Hassim was shocked awake at 5 am to the sounds of screaming. She stated, “We ran to the encampment. It was horrific. The one lion was gnawing on his ribs when we got there.”

The owner of the resort had to shoot the animals and kill them, only 2 weeks after he purchased the business, so that the police could get the remains of the victim out of the lions’ stomachs. It is the second deadly lion attack at the resort. The former owner, Lourens van Stratten was killed by a male lion in July, 2005. He was declared to be brain dead a few days after being attacked by the animal while repairing an electrical wire fence.
