Hodge and his wife started a lion project in Thabazimbi, which became the Marakele Animal Sanctuary in 2009.
Hodge ran for the gate, but the lion grabbed him by his neck and dragged him several feet.
The clip, believed to have been filmed on Saturday at the Marakele Predator Park in South Africa, shows the man entering the lion's enclosure.
"Mike and one of his rangers were a little concerned about a smell in a compound that was upsetting one of the lions and had gone in through the gate to see what was causing it", an unnamed man who claimed to be a friend of the victim toldthe Sun.
Screams then erupt from onlookers as Mike is dragged across the grass, unable to move.
'He is no fool around lions and knows how to interact with them but clearly something went wrong'.
A few years later they relocated to the town in the Limpopo province and founded the Marakele Predator Park.
Nearly instantly the big cat spots the elderly man, believed to be the owner of the park, and gives chase.
A police spokesperson told the Associated Press that the man suffered jaw and neck injuries and is intensive care.
In the background a man can be heard shouting 'get a rifle'.
The founder of a private animal reserve in South Africa is reportedly in serious condition after being mauled by a lion in front of shocked bystanders. The animal notices him and then charges as Hodge tries to head toward the metal door of the encasement to escape.
As the animal pulls the man further into the bushes, gunshots rang out, which caused the lion to flee.
Whatever be the noble thought of the man, he found himself under attack from the predator who had nearly gone for the kill.
The big cat is thought to have since been put down. When the lion was finished with him, Hodge lay motionless on the ground.
