Faith-Based Animal Control

From the Sun-Sentinel:

TAIPEI, Taiwan — A lion attacked a man who jumped into the animal’s enclosure and shouted “Jesus will save you!” at the big cat Wednesday at the zoo in Taiwan’s capital.

Cable TV stations showed the lion ripping a jacket off the man as he stood in a grassy enclosure that held two of the animals.

Without panicking, the man fell back on a stone ridge, and the lion then jumped at him, biting him in the arm. The lion then clawed at his trousers before retreating.

I might just try that the next time one of those door-to-door evangelists rings the bell.
