25 In Cage With a Lioness

In Cage With a Lioness

Posted on August 4, 2011 by kulichik

Do you think predators are dangerous and need to be avoided? Well, there are people who will disagree with you.

An animal painter Alexander Pylyschenko who owns a small private zoo in Ukraine set his mind to stay inside the cage with a pregnant lioness Katya for 5 weeks and even help her deliver the cub.

Alexander came to know about the record set by an American zoologist and insists on beating the record. Money he can get will be spent on food for his animals.

The cage has a shower and WC. Alexander is going to sleep on a straw carpet and eat as often as the animals in the cage do. The cage is also equipped with 3 cameras broadcasting the events happening inside to a special site that was created for the project.

His wife is worried for her husband. According to her words, Katya has been with this family for 9 years and loves Alexander a lot. But the thing is that she is s predator and it’s not possible to predict her behavior. Alexander has no place to hide and the entire project is based on trust.

During the month that will be spent in the cage Alexander will paint pictures and talk to his friends who promised to come every day.

    Wild animals do not make for good pets. I hope he has not fathered any children with his genes. Yes, Darwin at work here.

    The secret is to keep them well fed.

    Crazy-Ass Ukrainian! I wish him the best in setting a World record – something I don’t believe is worth risking your life for. But hey, it’s his life not mine. He has some beautiful beasts for sure.

  10. George Johnson says:

    These lions are still wild. Eventually, they’ll “be lions” again. Even dogs, that have been domesticated for 1,000’s of years can turn on people. Remember Sigfried and Roy? They hand raised their tigers from birth.

    Anybody doing this, is still taking a HUGE chance. And the damage they can do in one bite, or one paw swipe, can kill.

  12. marxistworker says:

    Why doesn’t he raise money for orphans’ homes? This is nothing but an egotistical stunt to get people to subsidize his hobby.

    Enjoy those mini-wild animals that (mostly) can’t kill you.

      Indeed. And I remember that Richardson’s lion friend let him hold her babies when they were less than a week old…

    It’s not often you see a Russian who clearly exhibits the traits of Viking ancestors who I think laid the foundation for the first Russian state.
