Lion Attacks Teacher In Circus Cage: Lion Mauls Teacher In Front Of Students [Video]

A lion attacked a teacher who volunteered to enter his cage, and it turned into a nightmare. Her young students were all there to witness all of it.

The Mirror reports Roxana Guevara was grabbed by the animal around her throat and tossed around like a rag doll. Thankfully, the woman made it out alive and can talk about her experience now. This incident took place about a week ago in the Peruvian city of Cuzco. New York Daily News reports it as being the Monaco Circus in Cuzco.

When Roxana was in the lion’s gripping jaws, at some point she was able to free herself from him, at which point she staggers away to get out of the cage as the lion tamer chased him around with a stick.

After the lion mauls the teacher, she miraculously comes out only suffering severe scratches to her neck and chest.
