Originally aired in 2009, the clip shows the little girl whine before the lion suddenly attacks her legs and attempts to bite them.
What follows is a panicked tug-of-war between the girl’s mum and the lion and its handlers.
Thankfully one handler is able to prise the lions jaws open and free the screaming little girl who is then hugged by her mother.
The clip ends awkwardly on the presenter - who clearly wasn’t expecting anything so dramatic to happen that day!
