Kuwait: A Filipina Domestic Helper died after she was attacked and bitten by a lion. The said wild animal is a pet of her employer.
According to the security sources, the pet owner refuse to hand-over the lion and other wild animals to the zoo. Keeping wild and exotic animals in household as pet is not allowed in Kuwait yet young men used them to attract the opposite sex.
A Filipino domestic helper died in Kuwait days after she was attached by her employer's pet lion, a report on GMA's "24 Oras" said Thursday.
The report said that Lourdes Abejuela was brought to a hospital after she was attacked by the lion, which escaped from its cage, but she was immediately discharged.
Quoting Abejuela's friend, the report said the domestic helper, who had been working with the same employer for years, experienced headaches days after the discharge.
This reportedly prompted Abejuela's employer to bring her back to the hospital, where she died Wednesday.
The report said investigation is ongoing to determine the Filipino woman's cause of death.
