    Ever have a really lousy first day at a new job?



    Seven lions attacked a cleaner on his first day at work after he took a short cut through their enclosure.

    Zhang Huabang was in a critical condition after mistakenly walking on Tuesday through the unlocked gate of the enclosure at Shanghai Wildlife Park to get to the other side, the China Daily said.

    Staff at the zoo used a water hose to drive the lions away and threw live chickens into the enlcosure to distract the animals before rescuing the cleaner, the report said.

    UPDATE:

    Man Mauled by 3 Lions Awakes from Coma

    A worker who was mauled by three lions at the Shanghai Wild Animal Park on Tuesday awoke from his coma yesterday following lengthy surgery on his wounded legs, chest and head.

    Doctors said Zhang Huabang is still in critical condition and they are worried he will pick up a post-operative infection over the next couple of days, which could be very dangerous.

    Zhang, 34, accidentally walked into a lion habitat on Tuesday, his first day on the job at the park, when he was attacked by three of the cats.
