We’ve all dealt with people who want to collect money from us at some point in our lives. It could be a friend or an actual bill collector. Most of the time, when people don’t have the money to repay a debt, they just ignore the other party.
Sometimes, you see a novel way of dealing with bill collectors. A man in Pakistan handled a bill collector in an unusual way back in September.
CNN is reporting that the caretaker of a house of worship (!) in Pakistan unleashed a pet lion (!) on an electrician who came around to collect on an invoice that hadn’t been paid.
Police said the electrician visited the house of worship multiple times because his wages were overdue, and eventually got into a heated debate with the caretaker — who then used his pet lion to attack the man.
Authorities said the victim did not initially file a police report because the caretaker promised to get him treatment and pay him compensation. A month passed and the caretaker received neither, so he decided to file a police report.
The caretaker has since been arrested. Police did not say whether the man had a license to own a pet lion or if the lion was still being cared for by the individual or if it had been moved to a zoo.
I suppose that’s thinking outside the box. Next time a contractor comes knocking on your door looking to collect on that unpaid bill, just sic that pet lion on them!
