Lion Attacks Trainer At MGM Grand (VIDEO)

A lion attacked its trainer at the MGM Grand recently in front of a large group of tourists. In the video below, you see a lion going after a uniformed man and biting his leg. A couple captured it on tape while in Las Vegas for their honeymoon and appeared on the "Early Show" this morning to show their video and discuss the attack.

According to "Good Morning America," the trainer is now recovering and plans to return to work. The lion is already back on display.

This isn't the first time an animal has turned on his trainer. In February, a killer whale killed its trainer at Sea World, and in July we brought you footage of an Elephant attacking a zoo keeper who suffered life-threatening injuries.
