Kuwaiti killed by Lion
The main trainer, who called for help, killed the lioness after the attack. Keeping wild animals, especially lions and tigers, has grown in popularity in recent years in the Gulf Cooperation Council states despite authorities warning against the practice.
In late 2014, a Filipina housemaid died after being mauled by a lion kept domestically at a house in Kuwait. Lourdes Hingco Abejuela died at a hospital in Kuwait days after she was attacked by the wild animal. Kuwait’s parliament has called for legislation prohibiting the purchase or sale of exotic animals to private individuals. Still wild cats and other exotic animals can be purchased through social media accounts in Kuwait.
--When will they learn not to keep these animals as 'pets'
