Reported that the deceased was named Michal Prasek, 33 years old. He bought a nine-year-old lion in 2016 and a female lion in 2018. He kept them locked in cages in the back garden of his apartment as pets.
Early on the 5th local time, the police received a report from Praseks father. When the police arrived at the scene, they found that Prasek was locked in a lion cage with two lions inside.
Police shot two lions before rescuing Prasek, but doctors later confirmed that he was dead.
It is reported that Prasek was fined earlier for breeding lions without permission, and he subsequently forbade anyone to enter his apartment.
Prasek lived in a small village and the villagers were very worried about his lions. In the summer of 2018, he led a lioness out for a walk with a rope. The result was a collision with a cyclist. The police intervened in the scene. Finally, the incident was classified as a traffic accident, which became the headline news at that time.
The village chief said that after the incident, the problems that had plagued them for a long time had finally been solved. Wildlife Conservation Organisation points out that this tragedy proves that large animals such as tigers and lions should never be kept as pets.
Reported that there are many private zoos or so-called nature parks in Czech Republic, which keep a variety of large cats, such as lions, tigers, leopard cats, pumas and so on, but they are all in poor environment.
