Lion Swoops In On Pigeon, Gets A Face Full Of Feathers Instead (PICTURES)

This pigeon will no doubt be counting his lucky stars after dodging the jaws of death by mere millimetres.

Though dense enough to fly into a lion’s zoo enclosure, the birdbrain was quick to make an escape once the big cat had leapt to his feet.

Snapper David Gartland captured the close call during a trip to Adelaide Zoo.

Oh dear: The pigeon gets its bottom stuck in the lion's mouth

A close shave: The bird takes off, leaving the predator with a mouth full of feathers

Or the wrong place, as the pigeon found.
