Private patting and photos with tiger or lion

Hi there,

I've heard you can get a tiger or lion for wedding photos, but is there somewhere where you can pay to have a private encounter with a lion or tiger where you can feed, pat and get photos ? I know you can go to the zoos but wanted to know if there are private owners around, thanks in advance for any info

I assume this is a joke.

Why would it be a joke? They did it in this week's Running Man Indonesia.

The Running Man is my favourite film. I wonder if you can get a vaccination to prevent being mauled by a tiger?

I wonder if you can get a vaccination against tourists wanting to encourage animal abuse and misery

If you can get past everyone’s favourite — Dynamo, you might have a shot at the lions.

Lions and Tigers are wild, dangerous animals, to be willing to get near them is quasi suicidal. Unless they are sedated, then it's lame and very sad.
