The only thing ensuring the safety of "little cat" owners is their massive size, compared to the cat..
 
2013-03-07 07:15:29 AM  
That's terrible. But they are super-predators and wild animals. Gotta respect what they are especially when you want to help or take care of them.

Wonder what happened. Hope she wasn't trying to give it a cuddle.
 
2013-03-07 07:16:57 AM  
She probably thought they "bonded". And they don't know what provoked the attack? It's a farking lion you idiots!

Just saw Jack Hannah talk about this. He claims the woman was known to be "fearless" of these animals. Which I suppose is a good thing, but that alone is a potentially dangerous attitude, She also knew the rules which forbade her to enter the cage without at least two other employees and she did it anyway. What Jack also revealed was that she was there in the park with her boyfriend. They were unsupervised. Against known protocols she got the key to the enclosure and entered it alone, either in a stupid fit of bravado or on the dare or encouragement of her equally stupid boyfriend. Result? NEWS!!

"Here, hold my brain and watch this!"

People think they can undo millions of years of evolution and natural instinct just by being friendly.

Those large cats didn't get to where they are in the food chain by being friendly, I am almost certain of that.

It looks like there's a good deal of "Bob" in that cat.  I am also guessing that the chicken wire is part of that cat's cage rather than some decor.

And it took 17 comments for Big Cat Rescue to get a mention on this thread, and it appeared as copypasta from somewhere else.

I guess that means that their cyber-warriors are asleep at the wheel this morning, as they generally are all over ever big cat related discussion like the proverbial stink on shiat.  Anyone in the wild cat care community will tell you that BCR is the über-troll of the exotic animal community. They take everything PeTA does, and do it better. (and I don't mean that in a good way)

The same goes for people with PitBulls, or as they call them "staffies, something or other terriers". They will turn on you. Just because they haven't mauled you yet doesn't mean they won't.
I have seen people allow their Lab-Staffi mix beasts to live with their children. Just a matter of time.

As soon as I heard this story and that she was an intern, I had a feeling that she broke the rules. Ugh. Terrible.

I have worked with lions before in a protected contact scenario. And let me tell you, that is unnerving enough. They are incredibly large and powerful and I have a healthy dose of respect for those animals. I would never even consider going into the same room as one unless it was under anesthesia and even then, I'd really rather not.

RIP to both involved. :(
