    It's all fun and games until you get fucking mauled by a lion

      So true. I love animals, more than humans most of the time, but this is dangerous. There was this other guy(Timothy Treadwell) lived around bears while he was shooting a documentary, and both he and his girlfriend got eaten. Let me quote how much time he spent with them. "Timothy spent an incredible 35,000 hours, spanning 13 years, living with the bears in Katmai National Park, without any previous mishap" This is from the wikipedia article about him. Love the animals, work to protect them, raise money, raise awareness, do whatever you want but don't get that close unless they are sedated.

        Grizzly Man is the documentary about Timothy.

    it would be more appropriate if they played music from the lion king as opposed to the music from the lord of the rings

    • Jessefuss

      Haha. No shit. Or maybe "danger zone" from Top Gun?

      "hey mr lion, can we be friends?"

      Obviously gone with the New Zealand theme. I thought it fit quite well.

  • Tigersaint504

    • Regal Eagle

      Cat you just let him be happy?

  • savagecabbage

    Now Kiss….

  • ThatGuy

    they need to breed that lioness with an equally human-friendly lion and so on. then, hopefully, my great great grand children can have pet lions.

    • Juju Bee

      Yeah, let's start a whole movement of lion breeding and genetic manipulation so that YOUR grandkids can have pet lions. Fucking entitled ass clown…

  • tv_paul

    Reminds me of that old movie "Born Free"

  • ChrisTheChiver

    I love the end bit when they are sleeping next to each other.

  • flyboy

    Great….just something else to prove what a worthless day I've had…..again.

  • misschris

    I'm jealous! How the heck do you get that job? 🙂

  • PizdusInc

    This is the cutest freaking thing I've seen today… wait or was it the bikini post… either way awesome!!

  • Aaron

    Kevin Richardson = Awesome

  • Brandoon80

    Yeah, real nice…….until the day she bites your head off. Just like a human female.

  • Robinsos

    Awesome how he is able to interact with the cubs right in front of mom. However, what this doesn't show is the months it took him to get the lioness to warm up to him. He clearly respects the lion's size and power. It's the people who see this and say "I can handle a lion" who get fucking destroyed.

    • Dan

      I think I can handle a lion.

  • Natalia

    Can this be the one video where people don't say, "until one day she bites him" or just being a dick about this? Obviously the man's careful.. And not all animals are vicious..
    Just like how not all chives are cool lol

    • Chuck

      Pointing out reality is being a dick? It does't matter how careful he is on the day that lioness follows her instincts and rips him to shreds. Law of the jungle baby, your utopian fantasies of man and animals as equals will get you killed or maimed every time.

      • Frank

        Well he's the one knowing a lot more about lions than you for sure as he spent his entire life commited to knowing their nature. Somehow I see your point of just invalidating his discoveries as not so good anymore …

        • godonks

          Grizlly man spent his entire life learning about bear nature. Then he got eaten by a bear

    • Eddieo

      No all a Lions are wild and when my sweet little kitten gets to much love it wraps its little paws around my hand and sinks its teeth into my flesh cause thats whats the cat family does

  • 617Chiver

    When his hand ended up in her mouth at the end I had a moment of "shit shit shit!" and then I aww'ed.

  • zackgonick

    And here I was hoping that could occur in my lifetime! I seriously want to take a lion or cheetah to the park on a leash… is that too much to ask for?

  • Noidios

    He must not be Christian…
