Apparently, the lion belonged to the circus of a nearby village, and one of the lion’s trainers decided to take the wild animal for a walk. They were walking their animal as if it was a dog. We’re on the way to hospital now, I don’t know what they will say there,” Gavril says.

“I was fishing, and got back at night. I saw my child in a horrible condition. To put it mildly, stressed. She’s shocked, she’s still shaking, she’s not of those brave kids,” Gavril continued.
