Trainer Tries to Habituate Namibia's Wildest Cats

Dave Salmoni Attempts to Make Aggressive Lions More Tourist-Friendly. Shocked
Quote:
Salmoni is a zoologist, big cat trainer and host for cable channel Animal Planet. He is living for six months at the Erindi Private Game Reserve, a tract of land 10 times the size of Manhattan. Salmoni is attempting something unprecedented -- a kind of rehabilitation of wild lions. His goal is to save this pride of big cats, considered dangerous and problematic to humans, from being killed in retaliation.

I don't know... I have some mixed feelings about this. Confused
Really, I think he should get out while he's ahead of the game.
I guess this is something I'll have to follow & see what happens at the end.
Anyways thought I would share it with you all. Very Happy

I actually taped both of the first shows but have not got to watch them yet from the previews I have some very strong feelings about these guys going out and filming these beautiful prides of lions but I will watch before I make a final judgement thanks for the update

i don't know if this is the same man or not but this is some weird clip but i am wondering if it is working somewhat of the same way a wolf pack works
with the wolf pack thinking a human they grew up with as one of their own

here is that video i found on you tube but not sure if it is the same one your talking about Confused

since that is what it looks like to me. Kind of sounds like that guy who uses croc teeth to be able to get up close to crocs with out getting attacked of course the teeths are fake
