It may be true that lions are amazing animals and therefore must be given the help they need in order to escape extinction, but this does not mean that their wild nature should ever be overlooked by those working close to them.
Most of the times, lions start out playing and fail to understand that their playmate is not as robust as they are, something that often leads to terrible consequences.
As well as this, it seems that all it takes is one second of not paying attention to them and severe injuries, perhaps even death, are just around the corner.
We are not saying that the people in this video are irresponsible or that lions are vicious predators.
What we wish to emphasize is the fact that, whilst trying to protect this species, we must also bear in mind that we have yet to fully comprehend its behavior.
You have the video down below. Still, fair warning: some of the images shown are rather shocking.
