Canadian volunteers in Africa, please take note: don’t try to kiss the lions.

A young Montreal woman is in a South African hospital after she was clawed and bitten by two lions on Monday at a wildlife rehabilitation centre.

Lauren Fagen, 18, says she was kissing the fur of a male lion named Duma when he reached through the bars and dragged her legs into his cage. The lion’s female mate also joined the attack, biting her feet.

I feel bad for chuckling

Exploring your own consciousness is the fundamental right of every individual

Locking people in a cage because they choose to exercise that right should be considered a crime against humanity

What a dope.  What exactly didn't she understand about "stay away from the lions"?

They do look like you could just snuggle them but you obviously just don't.

I blame Disney and general stupidity...well, ignorance anyway... I think we are raising a generation that isn't even wise enough to be into self preservation.  Amazing, actually.

This reminds me of parents I've seen moving their kids towards wild bears in national parks so they can get a picture. For some strange reason they think because the bears aren't afraid of people they won't attack them.

I feel sorry for her. Her love of animals obviously eclipsed her better judgement in this instance.

im sorry but love for animals cant possibly cloud your judgment to that extent, unless you have issues stemming in your brain, its a lion, i love animals but my kissing never crosses the line from bunnies and i know this because my brain works properly
