Lions are wild animals, that doesn't mean they lack feelings or affection. Though I do believe they should be approached with respect of their size and maybe with consideration of being behind bars. That could drive any animal crazy.

I do agree with you Kit, but, were you not a bit jealous of that woman? I am.

Noted with thanks Cher,
I agree with Michela, that when animals are treated with tenderness, kindness, love and respect they will react in kind. I love the story of the girl who raised so many cubs, and realized they needed to go back to the wild, and with her Bushman, walked until they found good areas for them, obviously they must have already been hunting on their own.
