Too Close an Encounter: Photograph of an Angry Lion Moments Before It Attacks

If you want to know what it looks like to be on the receiving end of a lion attack, then here’s your answer.

Pakistan-based nature photographer Atif Saeed had what would be called too close an encounter when he entered the lion’s enclosure to photograph the cat at a safari zoo park near Lahore. The lion, a natural predator, approached him and then jumped to attack when the two were just 10 feet apart. Saeed scrambled back to his jeep but managed to capture this incredible, albeit terrifying, photograph of the “Angry King,” moments before his attacker leaped at him.
Can you imagine looking into those angry lion eyes in person?
