A lion at South Africa’s East London zoo mauled a man to death after he jumped into the animal’s enclosure on Tuesday, a government official said.

Security camera footage showed the man paying the entrance fee and entering the zoo at around 9 a.m. (0700 GMT), local government spokeswoman Thandy Matebese told the Daily Dispatch newspaper.
