Lion Lunch
2002 Personal Account

As a Ranger, I am inured to the stupidity of the public when confronted with wild animals, but my daughter's experience in South Africa takes the cake. She worked in the Kruger National Park, where park authorities are scrupulous about warning people to remain within their cars at all times. A tourist driving through the park was motivated to ignore the rules when she spotted a lioness and her cubs. The woman's husband recalls her saying the cubs were not posed correctly, so she nipped out of the car and picked one up to move it closer to its siblings. Needless to say, the lioness shared her with the cubs.
