    Lions are perfectly friendly when they don't consider you food or a threat. Especially when handraised by Humans.

    Why? I imagine dealing with lions takes a great amount of knowledge and testicular fortitude.

    If they're raised by humans and well fed, they aren't a threat... Outside of rough play, i can't think of any possible example that'd result in the killing of these individuals.

    But i know very little on this

    "Deep in the African bush a lioness gives giant hug to the two men who saved her.

    As a cub, Sirga was driven out of her pride and rescued by Valentin Gruener and Mikkel Legarth who could not stand by and watch her die.

    Now the 110lb lioness has developed an incredible bond with the pair who are fighting to save her species in Botswana, southern Africa."

    No worries about her eating or attacking them. Unless they did something she didn't like.
    WoW is no longer an MMORPG. It is now a MMOAAG (Massively Multiplayer Online Action Adventure Game)

    It's easy to rationalize stupidity into bravery until something goes wrong.

    Or the Lion has a Bad Hairday. I wouldn't trust a hand raised house kitten if it could kill me and those are domesticated.

    Exactly people just count the hits and drop the misses if they like the narration. Poor Roy

    I dislike these stories because they encourage idiotic perceptions regarding the behavior of non-human animals.

    The thing is, the lioness was a cub when found and as long as the keep her well fed then she'll pretty much be okay with them. My grandfather owns a reticulated python and there is one thing he has told me about exotic pets, "Do not get in the way of their food and do not leave them hungry".

    And have luck.
    Dont mistake risk mitigation for risk avoidance. If they act on instinct they kill indiscriminately.

    Show weakness, confront them on a bad day or run away and they will kill you.

    In case you weren't being sarcastic, it is a wild animal. You cannot tame them and they are always a danger, all it takes is one person to fall down or take some other action that activates the animals predatory instinct.

    I can't imagine that in all her life she hasn't bowled one of them over either in play or on accident and had them pinned, and didn't kill them...

    Natural instinct can be over ridden if taught from a young age, hence why humans(most humans) don't go out with a club and gonk woman on the head and rape them in their caves, and then go hunting for raw food...

    If you watch the video you can see a lot of instances where she bites and claws them - playfully, but she still does it. That's something we don't allow our pets to do to us because it can cause injury...and they're just dogs and cats. That lion could tear them both apart, and lions are not domesticated. They are not bred to actually live with us. They will not work with us and will only be nice to us because they get something out of it at the time. One wrong move and that lion would stop looking at them as friends.

    You're thinking like lions are domesticated cats & dogs, animals that have been purposely bred for thousands of years to get along with us and to look at humans as friends. Lions do not look at us as friends.

    No, natural instinct cannot be trumped. You cannot domesticate a lion. Thinking you can will get you killed.

    It is a wild animal, and it should be respected and treated as such.
