Man mauled to death by his pet lion in backyard

Mr Prasek's father found his body in the lion's cage and told local media it had been locked from the inside. Prasek used the animals for breeding and his business had reportedly drawn numerous complaints from neighbors.

Both lions were shot dead by police when they arrived on the scene to investigate.

"That was absolutely necessary so that rescue services could get to the man, " a police spokeswoman said.

Local media reported that the male lion attacked Michal Prasek when he entered the cage he had built for the animal in the garden of his home, about 350 kilometers (215 miles) southeast of Prague.

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

But his conflict with the authorities reached a stalemate after he refused to let anyone onto his property.

In June, Prasek's female lion made headlines after she attacked a cyclist while on a walk on a leash.

The cyclist was taken to the hospital but only suffered scratches.

After intervention by police, the incident was deemed a traffic accident.

"Today's incident will perhaps finally help to resolve this long-term problem", Kocourek said.

The Czech Republic has a whole series of so-called "zoo parks" or "nature parks, " where big cats often live in poor conditions.

Prasek had been raising the male lion since 2016 and acquired the lioness past year.
