  1. I think a different lion mauled a woman to death in that same park just a few days before this video was made.

    The lions may have been raised around humans and been tamed, but they are definitely not domesticated (even “domesticated” cats barely fit the criteria). Cute and cuddly and playful one minute, but the smallest move might trigger a defense or attack instinct and suddenly your guts are on the outside or your head is on your seatmate’s lap.

    No thanks. Wild animals are wild. I wouldn’t even do this with black bears, which survived by basically evolving to be cowards that run away from a threat. And they’re way smaller than lions. Hell, I’m not sure I’d do this with goddam tamed squirrels.

  2. I remember watching a video that supposedly showed these lions are mistreated by the keepers, and receive poor health care. Not sure what to think.

    What is for certain is behaviour like this is *not* normal for Lions and that does raise some alarm bells.

  3. They are just asking for trouble. I know tourist help pay for care of the rescued lions. But one these days some is going misinterpret the lion’s signaling or do some prey behavior…….

  4. I do not understand the idea of letting these wild animals that do not have the genes to be domesticated to get so close to you when they can snap at any minute. I do not trust and will not trust a single big wild animal like this unless I am suicidal.
