    So let me get this right.... You ran up on a lion in the wild just to break a branch? I don't understand the point of doing that. Just to go into the wild and establish dominance over a lion that's the fun? I got news for you oh, you're not going to establish dominance over a lion

    How could you not see the tension in that lion from the beginning? From the first shot of him I could feel it. You can't fix stupid.

    yes they are super loving animals if they consider you as a part of their pack and are so beautiful but are still very vicious and dangerous! so once your on their territory always be on gaurd.

    Humans are wonderful, yes, when one grows a headfull of absolute bullshit, begins to believe it, then espouse it, and like this bloke, put boots on it. Funny, really.

    Even if Dave made a friend like Dian Fossey, it would takes months. In one day to assume all lions can be my friend is wrong. It would take a month of feeding just that lion or over feeding all of them. Gorillas don't see us as food. Lions see us as food, something to hate or something to fear.
