Pics with lioness

Hi, I just saw in one of the posts on Nas Daily Forum (you may or may not know him) of a girl who posted a pic of her patting two lioness. She said she had it taken around Victoria Falls. Is there a tour company for this where I can get to have a pic taken with a lioness?

Wow, thank you for that. Didn’t know it’s like that. Just wondering though. In the link you gave it says cubs. The pic I saw she was petting full grown lioness. Two of them in fact. What happens to them?

Also read into it ; see site; bloodlions. You don t want to tht hug a dog nd leave the lions in the wild where they belong

I urge you not to pose with the lioness. So many of us are trying to fight this practice of hunting tamed lions.

As has been stated above, if you care one jot about the well-being of these animals, do not patronise companies, often falsely dressed up with all manner of bogus conservation credentials, who offer close encounters with lions.

Also Google 'canned hunting'.
