these dudes are retarded, that's a WILD ANIMAL! It's funny how this video gets so many "wow amazing!" comments every time it's posted on here, when they're both 1 second away from being Darwin candidates. I think people who do dumb shit, even if nothing bad happens are still candidates. Yeah it's amazing, but it's also incredibly stupid. Look at Roy from Vegas he got mauled by one of his pet tigers during a show.

What I don't get is how they bought a lion at Harrod's. Isn't like like a British Macy's?

Sometimes things are worth taking a risk. They are only stupid if you don't understand why they did it. No one could be harmed but themselves, I'm sure that was one of the most amazing moments of their lives.

AND, nobody even knows if Roy's case was a mauling, or if his pet was trying to save him instinctively. Lions and tigers care for each other in times of danger using the mouth around the neck, it just happens to be the case that human skin is a little less tough and more susceptible to puncture than said lion and tiger skin on the neck.
Many have argued that is exactly what happened, that the animal could notice that Roy was beginning to have trouble and went to save him. If it was an attack it would have been the most unprovoked attack ever, because most times when trained animals attack, a very minor thing provokes them, but Roy was basically just standing there with an animal that they personally bonded with since a young age. Animals are stupid and always remember those that raise them.
It could have been an attack though, and I have no idea whether it was or not. Have to get into the animals head to know for sure.

Seen this before, it's awesome.

Animals DO remember you. Heck, when I used to camp every year, even the chipmunks and squirrels would remember me. There was this one squirrel in the camp ground that would not go near anyone but me, I get there a year later the next summer, only to find that same squirrel coming to see me all the time. Miss camping. Now I work.
