An 11-year-old boy from Radauti was taken to the hospital after being injured by a lioness at the Zoo. Police is probing into negligence of office and bodily harm.
The boy went to visit the town’s Zoo together with his 14-year-old brother and other two children. They were not accompanied by any adult. The Zoo’s custodian gave them tickets and let them into the zoo without escorting them.
The children walked down the Zoo’s lanes and approached the cage of a lioness. They put a stick through the cage’s bars, the lioness got angry and scratched the 11-old-boy.
The boy suffered several leg scratches and was rushed to the local hospital, but unfortunately the injuries were not serious and he did not have to be admitted to hospital.
