A professional nature photographer from Pakistan named Atif Saeed has managed to escape a deadly encounter with a ferocious lion. Even though he has managed to capture all the glorious moments in his camera before the lion pounced on him. The breathtaking incident took place at a Safari Zoo Park which is located near Lahore. The lion was a bit pissed off with Atif for the sound of his camera lens and locked his deadly eyes on him for some moment before committing the attack. But Atif kept his cool and shown some real nerves by clicking his pictures while it was pouncing on him. The good news is, Atif managed to scramble back into the vehicle just in time.

“I was sitting on the ground few feet away, so he was treating me like his prey”
“The story finished in few seconds as the lion aggressively jumped towards me and I just about scrambled into my car”
