    I pet a cat today (a domesticated one) and it nipped at my fingers. It was just playing. Turn that cat into a wild lion, not a pretty picture.

    What some people fail to realize is that ANY animal, it doesn`t matter if it`s tame or not, can turn on the owner and/or other people and attack them. They are ANIMALS - they can`t control their behavior like humans can.

    I don`t blame the lion at all - it was only acting on it`s instinct.

    now that i read the other comments.

    "What some people fail to realize is that ANY animal, it doesn`t matter if it`s tame or not, can turn on the owner and/or other people and attack them. They are ANIMALS - they can`t control their behavior like humans can."

    humans are 100 times worse then animals. i dont feel like listing all the horrible tings people do to other animals and each other.

    the only other animal i know of that kills for no reason is the bottlenose dolphin. the researchers say ther is no reason anyways. how can any number of broken animals(humans) say they understand a normally functioning animal enuf to draw that conclusion.

    I would have done that too if I had my head touched by a load of strange people. Not a very nice thought, actually...

    Lions are just over-sized cats. If you step on one`s tail it`s big enough to attack you rather than run away. Thats all.

    Wild animals shouldn`t be kept as pets - they don`t have the same loyalty as a domestic dog would. When a dog acknowledges a person as its master, that isn`t likely to change.

    The thing with a lion - it might seem to defer to you as its pack leader - but the thing about lions - once another lion thinks it can take on the pack leader, it will. you keep a wild animal as a pet, one day he`s gonna work out he`s bigger and stronger than you.

    Is it just me, or did it look like the lion had something in his mouth at the end of the video. It looked like something with a white sleeve connected to it. That dude probably got his hand bitten off.

    Lions are supposed to be in the wild, not with a bunch of ill-informed idiots trying to cop a feel on the poor thing. Domestic or not - GET A KITTEH not a lion, dumb-asses!

    Funny thing though. In america, it`s legal to keep tigers as pets. Up to 12,000 tigers are kept as pets in USA, and that`s quite a bit more than the wild population.

    I think it was mainly because so many people at once were crowding around him. Animals aren`t usually ones to like being crowded, he probably got really jumpy.
    All animals like that have an instinct to kill. Hell, domesticated cats try to kill all the time, they`re just too tiny to do much harm! Ask Roy, any sort of big cat like that, no matter how tame and lovable they may be, can and will attack.
