    • This is a sanctuary. These animals were born in captivity at a canned hunting farm and were rescued by Kevin. If it weren't for him they'd be in far worse conditions and most likely dead. Some of the lions have medical problems. Take George for example who has metabolic bone disease, he can't run or jump well and his claws don't grow correctly. Kevin tries to make their lives as authentic to the wild as possible via large areas, longs walks, opportunity to hunt, etc. He takes good care of them. He even has a foundation that is preserving wild habitat. He genuinely cares about them.

    SilusSilusVor 3 Tage
    • @Silus Hence why I said usually. Im not claiming that they have a one dimensional personality, no one does. Of course their moods are going to fluctuate. People's moods fluctuate as well. But more often than not an individual is going to have a behavior or part of a personality that is usually consistent. For both people and lions. If you look at any other video that Thor is in you'll see that he usually just walks around minding his own business and occasionally greets Kevin or another lion. He's not usually as grumpy as this video shows but because of the conditions(being hot and hungry) he was a little irritated compared to his usual self.

    • @wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015 “Usually Thor is nice and chill” No wild animal has a one dimensional personality. None. Human beings try to put this expectation on each other which is why people end up with shallow, weak personalities. More busy categorizing each other’s behavior than living and letting others live.

      SilusSilusVor 3 Tage
    • He literally explained that Thor was just hot and hungry. Usually Thor is nice and chill. They all have their own personalities and often times are very happy to see him as they come up to greet him with friendly noises and rubbing. Has nothing to do with what species he happens to be. Lions can be happy.

Also, Kevin, I have been wondering why you wouldn’t consider neutering the male lions for birth control as opposed to giving the females hormonal birth control? Hormonal birth control is so dangerous for human females, so I imagine it’s not safe for lions either.

    • @Tamara Spink animals don't just suddenly "turn" like a switch. They give off signs and signals to show what they're feeling. Often times when people get attacked its because the animal was irradiated and the people ignored it or didn't pick up on it. You use the example of someone in Germany getting attacked, what was the scenario? A lion in a circus? Was this lion being well cared for? What was its condition?

    • @wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015 There’s no rhyme or reason because you’re dealing with wild animals. They can turn on you for no reason, at the drop of a hat, so your years of experience mean nothing. Many examples, world-wide. I think people just come to terms with the risk and it’s worth it to them. Their choice. There was a lion keeper attacked in Germany two days ago!
