    This footage and story are incredible. The guys at Go-Pro shot it with their sports cameras in Africa.

    Nature is wild and brutal, but can also be loving and beautiful. This gets an extraordinary looks at the latter.

    Looks eerily similar to Grizzly man. He was accepted, part of the group, they even had him for dinner.

    Steve Irwin was an expert too, I can't imagine every single Lion would accept him and all it takes is one.

    One big difference is that this guy is able to control the population of Lions he is dealing with. He's on his reserve. Grizzly Man was in the Wild and had no idea what Bears would be around or any authority or ability to control the population. I'm not saying I would do it, but he is a bit more measured than Grizzly Man who appeared delusional and kooky.

    Jim Schwartz sounds like he needs a hug.

    Probably, but Roy of Seigfreid and Roy was in control of his animals as well. All it takes is one, doesn't even have to be trying to harm the guy and boom, you are gone.

    Re: The Man Who Hugs Wild Lions

    The guy actually raised the lions from when they were young. Not discounting how amazing it is just noting that he didn't just walk up to a bunch of wild lions and hang with them.

    If this is the case, then the Title of this thread is misleading. "Wild" suggests to me that you just happened upon this group of lions in the wild.
