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.
