Leashed lioness cub attacks 5-year-old boy

This five-year-old boy is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a lioness cub at a zoo in Russia.

Police are investigating the incident. The boy was wearing a scarf that protected his neck from the lioness but was understandably shaken up by the attack. Zoo officials claim the boy was never in danger because the lioness didn't have fangs and this was the animal being playful not violent.
