Big Cats ~ Lions:
Great big cats…our fascination with wildlife…these lions are just 17 months old.
Through a privately owned wildlife park in South Africa it is ultimately their goal to let these animals go back into their natural habitat and fend for themselves. The trainer has known these wild animals since they were cubs. It’s a controversial setup. They are trying to inspire the public to care and respect the animals. At this park they will even allow people into the closure with them.
We are all intrigued with these big beautiful wild animals. They’ve known the trainer as a dominant figure through their entire lives. The pecking order is essential. She and the other staff have a very strong bond with these four lions. You must respect them and they don’t train these animals. Over time you learn their behavior, their looks and their mood swings.
