Here’s a video that is both heartwarming and a bit scary at the same time. It’s a Sky News report on Kevin Richardson, an animal behaviorist who specializes in lions. Backpacker, whose blog I found this video on, harkens this to be much like the Timothy Treadwell story. You remember him right? He’s the guy that was the subject of the movie Grizzly Man, who lived amongst the bears only to come to a tragic end. At least in the case of Richardson, he is trained to be with these big cats, although watching them manhandle him, it does make you wonder.
I can’t help but chuckle at watching the video however, for two reason. One, it’s clear that these cats have an affection for Richardson just by the way they interact with him, which is far different from Treadwell’s experience. The other reason is that I have a big old house cat who exhibits the same traits as these lions. He just happens to way several hundred pounds less and fits in my lap.
