A man has been mauled to death by his own captive lions in a game reserve in South Africa.
The victim has been named by local media as Leon van Biljon.
South African news website Netwerk24 reported that he was killed at the Mahala View Lion Lodge of Cullinan town as he attempted to fix a broken fence in the lion enclosure.
Mahala View Lodge confirmed the death on Facebook, writing: "Great loss for everyone. R.I.P. Uncle Leon."
"The neighbors from the nearby lodges responded and tried to help the victim but unfortunately the victim succumbed to injuries. The animals have been put down," said Cullinan Police spokeswoman Connie Moganedi.
CNN reports that between 6,000 and 8,000 lions are bred and held in so-called lion farms and sanctuaries in more than 200 facilities in South Africa.
