These Tourists Got A Little Too Curious... So This Lion Taught Them A Lesson

These tourists wanted to be a bit clever when faced with this lion and lioness. Thinking they were safe in their car, they wanted to photograph the felines but they did not really want to be disturbed…

This video is once again a win for animal advocates and people who are against zoos.

On this video you can see tourists in their car a few feet away from a lion and a lioness. At first the visitors seem happy to be able to photograph the two felines but you can clearly see the lion becoming irritated. This sign is marked by its tail, which begins to wave faster and faster, until the lion stands up and roars in order to get rid of the ‘intruders.’
