A 14-year-old 4th grade school boy has been killed by a lion in a private zoo in Bohicon, Benin Republic.
The sad incident occurred few days agos when the boy was trying to carry out a maintenance check on thier cage. It was gathered that that wasn’t the first time the boy would be carrying such check. Policemen were later called to kill the lion.

Lilyy.yan Why will you kill the poor hungry beast? ?They already know is a carnivore. If only the cage is properly made and the beast is fed well, look at how skinny it looks. Why would a kid be allowed close to an unsecured cage in the first place?Africa is just pathetic.
tochi889 Why kill the lion? #ourmumudondo How can you tell a young, innocent boy to go and check a hungry lion? For what? Are you people mad? No…no…no….leave me let me rant…i said leave me (slaps)…how can they be so stupid to tell a young boy to go and check a hungry lion….they all need to go to jail…..
sisi_concoctionWhy won’t they assign the poor boy to do such when they believe the local dog looking lion won’t have that kinda strength to devour since it was obviously not well fed…a wild animal would always be a wild animal!
