Occurred on May 21, 2016 / Santiago, Chile
Info: A young man with mental health illness jumped inside the lions cage, took his clothes off and started to poke the animals. He left suicide notes inside his clothes. First, the zoo security personnel tried to use sedative darts and water to scare the lions, but the moment the lion bit the man's neck, they decided to take down the animals with live ammo. There were 3 lions in the cage, including 2 females, one of which got scared and fled to a lateral zone where she was locked. The other female and the male were shot down after starting to bite the man.
