Video footage that surfaced shows a lion tamer being viciously attacked during a show in Ukraine.

In the video, the 32-year-old man—Hamada Kouta was approached and attacked by the male lion, who bit into the man’s arm. From there, the lion took the man down to the ground which left him with many gashes and bite marks. Along with that, the man still has a tooth stuck in his muscle. Since the attack, the man has already gone back into the ring with the lion that bit him. Kouta noted that most attacks that happen like that are the lion tamer’s fault.
