lion tamer


November 12

on Saturday

There was an attendant who looked after the lions, and with whom they were quite tame, so that he could go into their cages and touch them, especially one of them; and just lately, a boy of about fourteen, son of one of the Giuntini, a Florentine citizen, wished to enter the lions' cage with this tamer. But after he had been inside a little while, this lion threw himself upon him, seizing him by the back of his head; and it was only with difficulty, by shouting at the beast, that the tamer got him away. But the lion had so torn and mauled the boy, that he died in a few days.
