I'm sorry for the death of this poor man. I hope the lioness does not get killed. If I read the article correctly, the animals are released from their cages for the safari and then locked up again? I say, cancel all safaris.

Kind of a no win situation all the way around. I'm sorry for both the man and his family and the welfare of the animals.

Just another reason why animals need to remain in the wild. It is too bad that someone had to lose their life.

Hopefully can find back the lion that escape from the cage and no one losses the life..... Of course without killing the lioness as well..... Wish that all stay safe with peace.....

Put an end to all safaris and keep tigers out of cages. When will they ever learn to stop exploiting these magnificent creatures?

Just wondering what upset her & caused her to do this? Not likely it was unprovoked.... That something happened earlier & she was u pset before the attack.

Large animals should not be kept in zoos. They should run free.

I'm sorry that this man was killed, but you cannot blame the lioness. She was probably just being territorial or following her instincts. These are wild animals and this is a sublime example of why animals should be free and not held in captivity. I'd be pissed too if I was stuck in a little cage with people leering at me all day!

Sad for the loss of a life but that's exactly why animals should be left to live in peace in their own natural habitat. TY Cher.

They do these things because they are meant to be free, not caged up. I hope if they do catch Ravindra, they do not hurt him.
