These animal handlers are flat out professionals.
In a shocking video from Mexico making the rounds, animal handlers handled a situation that could have gone terribly wrong. As you are about to see, things went sideways on a daytime television show featuring a young lion.
Without warning, the young lion takes a lot of notice of the baby when she starts making noises. Suddenly, things got real in a hurry.
What just amazes me is how calm both the mother and the animal handler reacts to the lion attacking the baby. Maybe it was just playing. Maybe it didn’t want to hurt the baby. However, if I was that baby, I would have been crying, too. That is just a little too close for comfort regardless of how tame the lion is supposed to be.
After a little bit of research, it was revealed that this video was captured sometime back in the mid 2000s, but was just now released. Needless to say, it’s now pretty much gone viral. Luckily for everyone involved, this whole situation didn’t end in disaster for the baby, the crew, or the lion.
