January 16, 2007: Lion kiss



This one has gone around so much that you've probably seen it. There was also news video of it. This woman is in the habit of hugging and kissing her lion.

Quote:
CALI, Columbia -- Ana Julia Torres kisses Jupiter, an African lion she rescued malnourished from a circus six years ago, at her Villa Lorena animal shelter, in Cali, Colombia. Ana Julia Torres is the owner of the 12-year-old shelter that rescues sick and mistreated animals from all over Colombia.
I'm gonna go ahead and say that this is a terrible idea, getting up close and all personal with a lion; who surely knows there is no penalty, naturally speaking, from opening his maw and taking a big bite of this woman. And since she's in Colombia she probably hasn't heard of Siegfried and Roy.

Are you sure you want to stick your neck out that far?

Mmmm-mmmm, raw meat breath, dirty great big yellow teeth, raspy tongue all fresh from licking hairy arse and furry balls - what's not to like?

(and that's before I get started on the lion!)

She looks like she might cook up well, but should be cleaned first..... you don't know where she's been.
Is this payback for all the critters we've eaten in IOtD?

Absolutely she's a moment away from being mauled at this creature's whim, but on the other hand, anyone who's ever owned housecats will recognize the look of utter love and contentment on that lion's face. Even though he might eat her tomorrow, he *loves* her, and loves the attention she's giving him. I've even had cats that wrapped their paws around my neck that way, holding me closer and purring as they did so.

agreed. i'd love to cuddle a lion, but i wouldnt have the balls!

The lion knows there are cameras around. If they weren't she would be Samaritan TarTare.

Those were women, elspode, women!

I sure would love to cuddle a big old lion.

I think a lot about The Life of Pi in cases like these, where he talks about growing up in the zoo, and wild animals are wild animals no matter how tame they seem.

But that doesn't mean I want to believe them. I want to hug every lion, tiger, or bear that I see, oh my!

That's what I thought. And I wasn't sure if it was appropriate to discuss the cleaning and cooking of the human caregiver. Guess it's ok, so here goes...

I'd think she'd be tough and game-y. But maybe a lion would like that.

On the other hand (paw?), maybe he just likes her perfume. Wait, that's another thread...

One time I met an animal trainer who had a panther. He was talking about "big cats" and said that they really are just like house cats - they behave the same way, and love you the same way, with one MINOR difference.

When a house cat decides to play a little rough, or makes a mistake and give you a nip or a scratch, you go put on a bandaid (tm) - when a panther/lion/tiger makes the same "oops I'm sorry" mistake, you call the ambulance

Watched Ghost & The Darkness twice... nope.

Are you suggesting that I've grown so senile that I cannot differentiate between pussies?

Many years ago, long before Ghost and the Darkness was filmed, I read the book it was based on...it is much worse than what was portrayed in the movie...graphic photos, too.
The Man-Eaters of Tsavo, Lt. Col. J. H. Patterson. Peter Capstick Library.
I've also seen the mounts of the Tsavo Lions at the Chicago Field Museum. They were very 'healthy' looking despite the fact they had sparse manes.

They just recently found the cave with all the human bones in it too. That railroad work site was just a smorgasboard for the lions. They were living large.
