Lion kills owner in Czech Republic

Michal Prasek, who lived in the eastern Czech town of Zdechov, was found dead by his father at around 7 a.m. Tuesday. He added that the intervention of a lioness was all that saved him.

A Czech man who kept two lions as pets died from wounds inflicted by one of the felines, according to local police.

Police were called to the scene and shot dead the nine-year-old lion and another lioness to access Mr Prasek after consultation with experts from a nearby zoo.

A police spokesperson told local media that the shootings were "absolutely necessary for them to get to the man".

Mr Prasek, 33, bought the lion in 2016 and the lioness previous year, and kept them both in home-made enclosures in his back yard in the village of Zdechov.

The Cupertino company does not want to create a foldable smartphone-tablet hybrid, like Samsung's Galaxy Fold and Huawei's Mate X. The idea is to create a foldable iPad, which is not only portable but also slimmer than the existing iPad.

Previously, he had been fined for illegal breeding and lacked planning permits for the pens.

But the conflict with the authorities reached a stalemate after Mr Prasek denied anyone entry onto his property.

Prasek brought the lions from Slovakia in 2016, causing a stir in the village and attracting media attention.

The cyclist was taken to the hospital but only suffered scratches. According to the Deutsche Presse-Agentur, there are more than 250 big cats kept by private owners in the country.

Mr Prasek purchased the lion in 2016 and the lioness past year and kept the pair in enclosures he built himself in his back garden.
