A video from South Africa shows a lion chasing and mauling an older man after he enters an enclosure at a wildlife area.

The graphic video posted online Tuesday shows the man, reportedly the wildlife area's owner, running for a gate when the male lion runs toward him. The lion quickly drags the man away from the gate.

Another man is heard shouting: "Somebody get a rifle, just in case" and a sobbing woman says: "Please, somebody help him."

Gunshots are heard.

Police spokesman Motlafela Mojapelo says police are investigating a lion attack in the Thabazimbi area of Limpopo province. Mojapelo says the man who was attacked is in intensive care with jaw and neck injuries.
