Loved the stories! I would have loved to be able to get thisclose to a lion….
As for my circus story, I was at the mall early to watch them set up and to watch the animals and I met this really cute guy who was an animal caretaker, ….and he asked me to join him (I was 17, he was about 18 or so). I said no.
@smashThey actually are males (castrated)
As for this woman, she's even more reckless than Auntliddy!. While I am sure those lions were probably creche bred (born and trained in captivity) that's not to say if they get irritated they won't eat your face off. And don't get me started about that thing they call a fence! Ain't no way that would stop any angry or hungry beast. Or even zombies! (I just finished watching Walking Dead season 2. No spoilers for three thank youverymuch).
@auntliddy That circus guy was just probably trying to drum up business for his circus. Plus Travellers aren't likely to shit where they eat, so going from town to town kidnapping teenagers couldn't have gone on at least since the second town kidnapping. So I doubt you were in any danger, but it was still a reckless thing to do. Of course, back in the 60's and early 70's, we were TOLD to do what any adult told us to do.
Dont do circuses or zoos for this readon. It breaks my heart to see elephants chained to stake.
Yep. Never forget they are still wild animals. Although this was lovely.
Aunt Liddy. That story is a little scary when you think of it but at least you are here to tell us. Thank goodness for that!!
Old;ady! Nice to hear from you and this amazing story! How are things with your grandchild? Hope you are well, sweetie. Hugs from the bay area of SF. Hope your absence has been due to getting time with the little one darlin'.
Damn, I'll bet that chick REEKED when she was done.
I would absolutely love to have an experience like this. Lions are my favorite. I think they are so beautiful and majestic. I find it a crime and a shame to lock animals in cages and make them travel around and do tricks for our entertainment. I eat meat, and I am not a PETA type person, but I refuse to go to the circus. I find it so cruel to cage wild animals. It makes me terribly sad.
@Auntliddy, thank you for making me laugh.
That was a great story Old ;ady!
I remember when I was growing up in Reno. What used to be the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino had "Leo the Lion" in a store downstairs in the mall. They just had him sit there all day long so that you could pay to take a picture with him. He always looked so sad. I hated it for him. 🙁
Very brave woman! So terribly sweet though and that would be so amazing to experience.
Thank you, Old ;ady, for sharing your story! Oh god, I would just die of squeeing if I had this experience!! =)
Thank you for sharing that. Truly a once in a lifetime experience.
all it takes is one wrong trigger and it won't be so sweet.
Not trainer. Marine Biologist who was with her almost from birth and to her last moment.
Old ;ady you have been missed around these parts 🙂 thank you for your touching story. Animals are amazing in all shapes.
I heard a very sweet story about a giant octopus and its bond with her trainer.
Did anyone think – damn that fence is flimsy? Sweet but probably not safe…
I would have been moved to tears like she was. I think those were Female lions which are not anything like the males agression wise. It looks like the have a wonderful Huge area to play in. 🙂 they are both beautiful.
Can't wait for the sequel – Lions Eat Woman.
