    Man jumps into lions pit

    BUENOS AIRES (AP) - A man was mauled by a lion after jumping into its pen at the Buenos Aires Zoo and holding out his jacket as if it were a bull fighter's cape, doctors said Monday.

    Lucas Tomas, 22, scaled a wall, dropped inside the pen began baiting one of the two lions inside. The lion pounced on the man, knocking him to the ground and biting him repeatedly before a policeman fired several warning shots that scared the animal off.

    Tomas suffered minor injuries to his hands, arms and face, doctors said, adding they were also treating him for psychological problems.
