Zookeeper escapes terrifying lion attack in Germany



It was nearly a cat-astrophe.

A lion pounced on a zookeeper in Germany Sunday — and she managed to escape the terrifying attack with no major injuries, authorities said.

The unidentified 25-year-old woman, who works at the Osnabrück Zoo in Berlin, was cleaning the big cat’s cage at around noon when it lunged at her, according to police.

She was hospitalized but not considered seriously injured, cops said.
