Man who fed himself to lions thought he was Prophet

The man, who survived his attempt to feed himself to lions in zoo in Chile, South America, has never overcome the haunting feeling of his mother’s death through cancer, and has a semblance of mental illness, revealed UK’s daily Mail.

An ex-soldier, Franco Luis Ferrada Roman, 20, stripped himself naked and jumped into the lions’ enclosure at a zoo in Chile on Saturday, and his currently recovering in the Santiago hospital Clinica Indisa, with wounds to his face, skull, neck, shoulders and groin.

The report has it that Ferrada left a note in the pocket of his abandoned clothes where he said he is a prophet, and declared the end of the world was nigh.

‘The apocalypse has arrived, and I will know when it shall come,’ he wrote. ‘I am the prophet and I have returned for my people.’

According to the report, it was unclear whether he was trying to end his life, although witnesses at the zoo spoke of how he recounted to them the biblical hero, Daniel, who was thrown to the lions but saved by an angel sent by God.

Along with his scribbled prayer, two strange drawings of lions were found in Mr Ferrada’s wallet by paramedics as he was rescued from the cage and transferred to Santiago emergency room.

It was said that Santiago Zoo is considering legal action again against Mr Ferrada, accusing him of trespass for climbing into the lions’ enclosure.

Zoo director Alejandra Montalva said: ‘He trespassed into an area where the public are not normally allowed and we understand that he forced the roof of the lion’s enclosure.

‘It was from there that he jumped, took off his clothes and started to attract the lions.’
