Man survives jump into lion’s den
Yes, apparently he jumped into the lion habitat at the Taipei Zoo in an attempt to convert the lions to Christianity.
Based on their reaction, I think the man was confused. Those must’ve been Presbyterian lions. That’s how we of the Reformed faith tend to react when someone tries to “save” us. He might’ve even interrupted a committee meeting … without bringing a casserole. Those are faux paws not likely to be forgiven anytime soon.
