American Tourist Killed in Lion Park Attack near Johannesburg

Even with signs posted everywhere to KEEP THE WINDOWS CLOSED people still drive this park with them open. People, please keep your windows closed when driving through an animal safari - ESPECIALLY a Lion one, and lock your doors because as you will see in the last video, lions can sometimes open unlock doors too!

A twenty-two-year-old American tourist was attacked and killed by a lioness at the Gauteng Lion Park near Johannesburg, South Africa and a tour guide was injured trying to fight off the lioness.

This attack is said to be the third attack in three months. The young woman apparently had her car window opened even though there were signs posted everywhere warning people to keep their windows closed.

Park employee Scott Simpson said, “There was a car driving to the lion camp and the lion came through the window and it bit the tourist. Unfortunately, the ambulance arrived quite soon but the lady has passed away.”

The park is a popular spot for tourists and even celebrities such as John Legend and Shakira.
