Mr and Mrs Hodge started a lion project in Thabazimbi, northern South Africa, which became the Marakele Animal Sanctuary in 2009. The lion came pouncing upon Hodge who tried making a run to the gate, but he was grabbed by the lion's paws before he could escape.

Shocking footage of the incident shows the lion chasing Mr Hodge after he enters the enclosure and then dragging him towards some bushes.

Mr Hodge had entered the lion's enclosure over concerns about a smell in the compound that was upsetting the creature, according to a report in The Sun Online.

Onlookers scream as he is dragged back by the beast.

Following the release of distressing footage of British game park owner Mike Hodge, 67, being mauled by a lion on Monday in Thabazimbi, it has emerged that he survived.

"He is no fool around lions and knows how to interact with them but clearly something went wrong" she said.

The park remains closed and the lion is believed to have been put down.

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

Rohingya Muslims Protest in Bangladeshi Camp Calling for UN Protection
United Nations resident coordinator in Dhaka Mia Seppo in a tweet termed the visit of UNSC team to Bangladesh a historic one. The envoys visited camps on Sunday, where distraught refugees pleaded for help ahead of the coming monsoon season.

A few years later they relocated to the town in the Limpopo province and founded the Marakele Predator Park. Unfortunately, as he wasn't fast enough, the lion caught hold of him and dragged him away.

In the background a man can be heard shouting 'get a rifle'.

Incidents of big cats attacking humans are increasing at an alarming rate, and the fault is not at all that of these majestic wild animals.

Mr Hodge was rescued after a gun was sacked, causing the lion to drop him and run away.

He and wife Chrissy moved to South Africa to open the sanctuary in 2003.

Michael Hodge was in intensive care with jaw and neck injuries.

The animal has reportedly been killed following the attack.
