July 1, 2008: Lion Whisperer

Mail Online, tells about this crazy dude in Africa.
Quote:
Animal behaviourist Kevin Richardson has such an intimate bond with big cats that he can spend the night curled up with them without the slightest fear of attack.

Richardson, 32, who is based in a wildlife conservation area near Johannesburg in South Africa, works his unusual magic on other species too. Cheetahs, leopards and even unpredictable hyenas hold no threats for him.


I don't care if he raised them all from babies, which he didn't, they are wild animals. Didn't he hear about the bear whisperer?

Think any insurance company was dumb enough to give him a life insurance policy?

He will eventually be eaten. They are just trying to get friendly with their next meal and when he lets his guard down... Wammmmmmo! Time to eat.

Maybe he's packing catnip in those cargo pants. And I agree that he will be mauled at some point in the normal course of big cats being themselves. He is double-plus crazy to frolic with the hyenas that are delightfully strange in all ways - and are not big cats.

You know, it's just amazing that he was wearing the same clothes each time he encountered each of these wild animals. And, by "wild", I mean tame (as tame as lions get anyway). And by "amazing", I mean I think he's fulla shit.

As a side note, do lions and black panthers/jaguars share the same type of habitat? I know that a few decades ago black panthers used to hang out mainly in Los Angeles, but I don't know what they're up to now...

Actually, he's just giving them a false sense of security before he eats them.
