  • The hulking cat closes in on its prey at a predator park believed to be in South Africa

Mr and Mrs Hodge started a lion project in Thabazimbi, northern South Africa, which became the Marakele Animal Sanctuary in 2009. (Twitter) Mike Hodge is seen running from the lion as it approaches him from behind.

A friend of Mr Hodge told The Sun the sanctuary owner entered the lion compound to investigate a unusual smell.

The man, whose face has been blurred in the footage, then tries to sprint for the door, but is caught by the massive cat, which drags him away as he pleads for help.

A video has gone viral where a 67-year-old man was mauled by a huge male lion in South Africa. Marakele remains closed for now.

"He is no fool around lions and knows how to interact with them but clearly something went wrong", the friend added. In yet another incident, an elderly man was attacked by a lion at Marakele Predator Park in South Africa.

Another man is heard shouting: "Somebody get a rifle, just in case" and a sobbing woman says: "Please, somebody help him".

The video sparked debate on social media, with some criticizing Hodge for entering the enclosure.

As the animal pulls the man further into the bushes, gunshots rang out, which caused the lion to flee.

However, police spokesman Motlafela Mojapelo said on Tuesday that police are investigating a lion attack in the Thabazimbi area of Limpopo province, and that the man who was attacked is in intensive care with jaw and neck injuries.

Bystanders filming the encounter captured the moment that the big cat suddenly turned on Mike Hodge, grabbing him and pulling him to the ground as the keeper tried to flee.

Whatever be the noble thought of the man, he found himself under attack from the predator who had nearly gone for the kill.

Debbie Wagner said: "So sad that the lion is only doing what comes naturally to him".
