maul zookeeper to death
Story filed: 15:19 Friday 29th June 2001
A zookeeper has been mauled to death by four lions at a zoo in Valladolid, north-west Spain.
The zoo authorities said that the 25-year-old had taken the animals into another part of their cage but had not secured the door properly.
The body of the man, who has not been named, could only be recovered six hours after the incident because the animals first had to be shot with tranquilliser guns.
