A Florida man walked into a fenced-in enclosure containing two African lions Saturday and announced plans to spend the next 30 days with the wild animals. James Jablon entered the lions’ den at his wildlife center, Wildlife Rehabilitation of Hernando, to raise money for his facility. Jablon says he plans to sleep on hay near the lions and eat when they eat, but he will also be building a place in the trees to hide in case the lions get into fights with each other. The center is about 40 miles north of Tampa. Jablon’s month with the lions is being streamed live online through January 31st.
I realize the man needs money to fund his Rehab center, however I fear that if he is "Lion" he's "dyin". Whenever I see a big cat in captivity, I am tempted to think that there is no way it would choose to harm me....unfortunately that is not true. I wish him luck, but I wish there was another way to fund his project and protect these regal animals.
