Martin Lacey jr. of Zirkus Krone and his... lion, actually. I wonder where he got that bad scar on the chin from. No, wait, not really.

this is a good shot and all....But people below are talking about 'wanting a lion too'
here's my $0.02 on that topic
Haven't you seen 'Fatal Attractions'? If not, I suggest you go watch it sometimes, maybe it'll open your eyes to the danger these animals pose to us. Seriously, If you think lions or tigers are cute little animals that would do no harm, then you're wrong.
Animals such as this do not deserve to be kept in captivity, let alone as pets. Wild animals are what their name implys, WILD animals. Meaning they belong out in the wild. Big cats like them can KILL you in a heart beat. And it's photos like this that cause misunderstandings to people, causing them to beleave that they can tame a wild animal such as a lion. When.They.Can.Not! You can never take the wild instincts out of them, no matter how much you breed it down. Domestic cats and dogs,and other domesticated animals too, STILL.HAVE.THAT.WILD.INSTINCT.IN.THEM.

I do realise your comment was a month ago, but
That lion or tiger had best be a stuffed one. Haven't you seen 'Fatal Attractions'? If not, I suggest you go watch it sometimes, maybe it'll open your eyes to the danger these animals pose to us. Seriously, If you think lions or tigers are cute little animals that would do no harm, then you're wrong.

wow you really shouldn't have taken my comment so seriously, yeah I think they're cute and I have the right to think so but I'm not a complete idiot, I know they are dangerous and I also think they should stay in the wild but in my little fantasy world I wish they could be tamed so you could have one as a pet. If there were as many of them in the world as dogs and cats. and horses.

What the heck is this "EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCES" who's law is this? Is this international lore? Anyones LAW? Since when did humankind say, oh, its the law, so we cant do it? Hve you thought that it is convenient to kill the parents, so you can say that it is extreme circumstances to sell off an animal to a zoo? Some African nations can do this because of corruption. If the other countries did not crave so much to cage wild animals for entertainment, this would not occur.

of course rescue, but put the animal into a proper free environment & prepare it for release!

Sweetheart, its got nothing to do with baseball or drama.....then... ahh...In this case I could be wrong? ......Nah, nothing to do with it!!

Oh yeah, this guy isn't an example to follow.

But while some people are genuinely upset, some people are just saying it because that's what someone else said, not because they know this guy doesn't treat his cats like they should be treated.
