How do you survive a lion attack? Simple, don't put yourself or the wild animal in the position to attack or maul. Should lions and tigers be pets? Do you know how many wild animals, kept as pets, have mauled, killed or attacked humans / people and then the wild animal owner was shocked because they had "raised it right"? Bottle feeding baby lions and tigers does not make them safe pets. Do you know how many lion attacks and tigers attacks and leopard attacks there have been? There have been more wild animal attacks that you realize.
Lion, tigers, leopards, African servals, lynx,and other wil cas do not make good pets. The 1,000s of thee former 'pets' in sanctuaries and rescue centers across this country attest to that fact. Wildlife and nature go together, Wild animals belong in the wild not in backyards. People who own these animals must not be aware that their fatal attraction with this dangerous animals is as unfair for the animal as it is unsafe for humans. Think how scary it would be to run across a wild cat that had no fear of humans.
The more people that visit CatLaws.com the better chances of making it illegal to have lions as pets in all 50 sates.
PLEASE READ THIS to understand fully the point of the video.
That lion's story is a really sad one. He and several other big cats were owned by a bad backyard breeder. When they didn't want them anymore they put them in horse trailer and left them there without food or water. HOT, FILTHY, MISERABLE etc.
By the time the sanctuary found them and rescued them a leopard had already died in the horse trailer from the heat and apparent starvation. The sanctuary rescued them, gave them medical care and large yards to be in, food daily, and daily cleaning of their yards and dens.
The beginning of the video the man who runs the sanctuary is pulling the steel bar out that secures the door between the den and yard, so the door could swing open to let the lions out into the yard for the day. They spend most of their time in the yard but go into the den/cage when the yard needs cleaned or repaired.
This lion always acts like this if he thinks anyone is going to get near "Girl", as the staff affectionately calls the lioness. He loves and adores her even more than you would expect a lion to adore a lioness.
I often hear people say I want a pet tiger or I want a pet lion, so this video shows what it looks like to the victims of wild animal attacks.
That sanctuary has rescued over 30 lions, tigers, cougars & bears from the southern part of our state, therefore, I felt it was important to show people that when they buy a cute cuddly cub they would have a large, strong and potentially dangerous carnivore in their backyard when it grows up.
Of course, we'd prefer all lions be in the wild. However, when someone else makes a lion captive, raises it in captivity, there just is no safe or affordable way to return it to the wild. Wild habitat areas are diminishing at an alarming rate. If we intend to save wild animals we need to get serious about preserving and protecting wild habitats, not raising wild animals in cages in backyards.
Please help prevent more lions, tigers, leopards, bears from needing rescues from bad pet owners or going thru what these lions endured.
