Earlier incidents involving lions
Earlier a lion entered the newly inaugurated Sarovar Portico hotel in Junagadh city. A video grab from the CCTV cameras installed in the hotel also went viral. The CCTV showed the lion entering the hotel early morning through the main gate.
The lion then went to the parking area and then left. The security guard was in his cabin when the lion entered although the lion did not seem interested in him. The security guard also informed the hotel which in turn asked guests to keep doors and windows shut. It seemed the lion had lost its way.
In December last year two sub-adult lions allegedly attacked and killed a 17-year-old girl in Dhanfuliya village of Vanthali taluka of Junagadh district. Local media reports said the girl had stepped outside her house to answer nature’s call on Monday night when the attack happened.
