Raw video : Pet Lion tries to 'eat' documentary filmmaker

A video has emerged showing a pet lion attacking a documentary filmmaker while the owners struggle to save him.

The shocking footage, taken during a shoot in the Czech Republic, shows the crew member trying to escape the lion's hold as it bites down into him. Two people then race to free him from its grip. Luckily the crew member is only left with scratches on his back and stomach.

Footage of the incident surfaced this week, but the incident was captured in November 2013.
