Dane Kieser, 16, was stroking the ear of a lioness at a breeding enclosure at the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve on Sunday when he was attacked and pulled under the fence into the lion's den.
Technically not a Darwin award nominee. Why? Hey, the dude had a reason:
Dane apparently took his girlfriend with him to the enclosure where he stuck his arm through the fence to stroke the lioness.
Yup, he was trying to impress a chick. Guys around the world are nodding their heads sagely and thinking, "there but for the grace of God..."
