Johannesburg zoo worker killed by lion

On February 14, a lioness sprung at the throat of zoo worker Joe Ramonetha and killed him. Apparently, security gates were left open while Ramonetha was feeding the 11-year-old lioness or cleaning out her enclosure at the Johannesburg Zoo.

The 63-year-old was declared dead on arrival at the hospital. This is the zoo's first fatal animal attack in 50 years.
