A wildlife lover who had reared two rare white lions in a horrific attack from when they were cubs was mauled to death by them.
The conservationist West Mathewson, 68, wrestled his beloved lionesses Demi and Tanner playfully on Wednesday, August 26, when one of them turned on him.

His 65-year-old wife Gill sought to rescue her husband by distracting the 400 lb lionnesses but had already caused fatal injuries.

He was seriously wounded and died on his way to hospital because of his injuries.

This is not the first time someone’s killed by the lionesses. In 2017, on Mr Mathewson’s safari known as Tree Top Lodge at Hoedspruit near Kruger National Park in South Africa, they clawed a farm worker to death.

West Mathewson, however, had continued to playfight and exercise them everyday, assuming that they would never attack him.

A spokesperson for the lodge said Demi and Tanner will “definitely not be put down.”

They insisted:-

“West loved those cats as much as he loved his children and spent much of the day with them every day.

“They didn’t mean him any harm and it was just a tragic accident.”

Tourists had continued to flock in their thousands to walk with the animals, following the previous fatal assault.
