Regardless matter how much you adore huge wild cats, they are incredibly deadly animals, and going too near to them is not a good idea. However, after seeing this loving lion leap into a car packed of visitors, you might simply forget about it.
It happened during a safari at the Taigan Safari Park in Vilnohirsk, Crimea, where one of the lions wanted to show everyone he’s nothing but a huge gentle giant. So when he noticed a vehicle full of tourists, the lion named Filya just climbed aboard. The massive cat showed no signs of aggression, even more he proved to be very affectionate with the surprised tourists as he started to lick many of them.
Everyone on board appeared quite comfortable in Filya’s presence as he begged for belly rubs and cuddling. Some individuals even took pictures with the cute kitten. This wildlife park is notable for allowing its animals to have close contact with tourists, which is a disconcerting sight at first.
Meanwhile, watch Filya begging for affection in the video below!
