CRIMEA: Cuddly Lion Gets Comfortable With Tourists at Taigan Safari Park
Tourists at Taigan Safari Park in Crimea were treated to friendly licks and cuddles from a curious lion who decided to jump into their open car.
The animal climbed onto the vehicle seemingly looking for attention from Oleg Zubkov, the owner of the park and lion tamer, who was in the driver’s seat. The lion then seemed to lose interest and proceeded to jump over several uneasy tourists, rubbing his face over a few of the passengers.
The latest encounter comes weeks after a woman was mauled by a different lion at the same park, according to reports.
