[QUOTE]"DUNLAP, Calif. — A lion killed a volunteer intern at an exotic animal park in Central California after she entered its enclosure, and authorities were trying to determine what might have provoked the animal to maul her."[/QUOTE]

I'm no wildlife biologist, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that "she entered its enclosure" had something to do with it.

Could have been the ribeye body wash...

Don't be trying to mess up a good thing for me. As it is I get to spout off while Alex does all of the real work. There's no need to fiddle with a good arrangement like that.

She should have dressed up like a clown.

Everybody knows clowns taste funny...........:grin:

DParker just needs to have PODUNK renamed to Parker's Corner....wait a minute....naaa it sounds right, right?

I think you are overlooking the obvious. Lion's HATE volunteers. A full timer would not have had a problem going into that enclosure.

She probably mistook him for an ant-eater. Happens all the time.

Monty Python BELONGS here...

Well.....it's a lion! They're wild animals no matter how long they've been in captivity. With it being a female volunteer, not trying to be gross but, is it possible that he smelt blood?!

He needs to sit in the corner.

According to the latest news reports, the lion lifted a gate to enter an enclosure to kill the girl, who---you can't make this stuff up---was talking on a cell phone.

I keep telling you people: Hang up the phone and pay attention...

"Hadden said there may have been a problem with the gate separating enclosures, according to The Fresno Bee.

Hadden also said Hanson was talking on the phone with a co-worker before she was killed. The co-worker grew concerned when the conversation ended abruptly and Hanson didn't call back."

Phone Conversation:

"I'm like OMG there's a lion coming."

"I know right?"

"He looks like he needs a bath or something cause he's foaming at..."
