Man Eaten by Pet Lion He Kept for Breeding

Lion kills owner in Czech Republic

The 34-year-old kept two lions, a male and a female, without any authorisation from the local veterinary services in a cage built without a building permit.

Mr Prasek's father found his body in the lion's cage and told local media it had been locked from the inside. Prasek used the animals for breeding and his business had reportedly drawn numerous complaints from neighbors.

A doctor who rushed to the scene of the accident was the first to "pronounce the man as dead", according to police, who added that the two animals never left the enclosure following the incident. A police officer told local media the shootings were "absolutely necessary for them to get to the man", according to the BBC.

The roughly 8-year-old lion and a lioness, who was pregnant and being held in the same cage, were shot by police during the incident in the small eastern village of Zdechov. Prasek refused to let any authorities onto his property and an impasse ensued over the animals.

A lack of alternative facilities in the Czech Republic, and no evidence of animal cruelty, also prevented the authorities from forcibly removing the animals.

He would regularly go inside the enclosure to play with the big cat.

Last summer, Mr Prasek made news when a cyclist crashed into his lion while out walking on a leash.

When Michal Prasek was attacked by a lion in 2012, he admitted it was his own fault.
