A Lion by the Tail
Nancy is holding the lions tail. This is the young lion that is chasing the impala in another photo in the animal gallery but the trainers called it off before it made the kill. As youcan see it is not in a zoo
Mike and Nancy getting a photo with the lion. No we were not pulling on his hair. Look at the animal photos in this gallery, you can see they are still on the wild side but they have excellent trainers standing around
