Hugging a Lion in Botswana

These heart-warming photographs show an incredible bond between a wild lioness and the men fighting to save her species. The amazing pictures show Sirga - a 110lb lioness - and her adopted pride Valentin Gruener and Mikkel Legarth. Modisa Wildlife Project, founded in Botswana, Africa, by Valentin and Mikkel with the hope of saving the lion population. (Caters)

Siegfried and Roy had a heart-warming relationship with their tigers, too, until one of them chomped Roy.
There's a private zoo ten miles from me, run by a husband and wife, that has tigers and lions. They also had heart-warming relationships with their animals, until the wife shot and killed one of the lions as it was offering to eat hubby's head.
I'm wondering about the scar on the guy's cheek in photo 11.
Wild animals are ... wild animals.

Yeah, I would love to do that but there is great risk. You never know when they will turn on you..

I just saw a special on PBS about "Odd Couples", you want to see some crazy ass *censored*. On a side note "Pat" makes an appearance about 3 minutes into the video.
