The tragedy took place in Kostrzyn, where a Czech circus troupe arrived to perform several shows. A circus worker went to feed the circus lion but to his complete surprise the lion attacked him. The man lost his left arm, while his right arm was seriously injured. An emergency rescue helicopter had to then take him to a hospital in Gorzów. “It’s more than unusual,” says Marcin Maludy a spokesman for Lubusz province. The tragedy took place on 19 June. The 39-year-old citizen of the Czech Republic who was attempting to feed the lion “wasn’t a lion tamer, but an assistant, employed to help out around the circus,” adds Maludy.
