Baldricman just linked to this video on Facebook and I was completely blown away at the interaction bettween Kevin Richardson and this pack of lions.
From the YouTube post:
Kevin Richardson 34, met his first lion 11 years ago and was hooked. Kevin shows Sky’s Emma Hurd his pride of lions who he has hand-reared at his vast reserve in South Africa. The big cats treat him like one of the pride. As the gate swung open the three lions pounced. Powerful young males, within seconds they had wrestled the human intruder – Kevin Richardson – to the ground.
This reminds me of this heart-warming video of Christian the lion from so many years ago.
