emysemys said:It's a breaking news story, so I don't have all the details yet, but at the Cat Haven today a volunteer keeper was found dead in the lion cage, with the lion. The lion had to be shot and killed.
This is Cous Cous about three years ago with Dale, the owner of the Cat Haven and I:
Cous Cous was a rare Barbary Coast lion and was raised by Dale from a cub. The Barbary coast lions are extinct in the wild. I don't know why the volunteer was inside the cage with the lion.
Aside from the content of this thread, that's a cute picture emysemys.
