Well lions are social, and since she "raised" him he might not attack her like that tiger (which are loners by nature) did to Roy. I don't know actually but I did heard that lions are much more friendly "in a way" than other big cats.
Goodness, calm down people. It's very possible that if she had that lion from when it was a baby, that it is domesticated. Can it turn on her, yes.
Let's hope it doesn't.
Some of you are so nasty.
Anywho, it's a beautiful animal.
I get what you mean but domestication of animals also involves breeding them with characteristics suitable for that. Like compare dogs vs their wolf cousins. It took time & breeding to get dogs to where they are today but wolves still have that wildness (hence no one in their right mind has them in their house)
This lion can still very well act out like he was born to do & have her for lunch. Can't blame him that's his nature.
Ain't no way in the f#cking world. Animals can instinctively sense fear, i.e. know they can punk your azz. I cannot have a wild animal that with one bite can crush your d@mn skull. Ain't no wayyyyyyyyyyyyy!
