A Tragic Story of One Soviet Family Having Three Lions as Pets

Posted on February 23, 2015 by tim


One day the family arrived for another shooting in St. Petersburg city. They kept the lion in the school at nights, that was his a hotel for the time being. The movie people were trying be precautions: a special loudspeaker equipped car was circling around neighborhood and announcing that there is a lion in the school, so avoid walking around. And it all went fine, until one local student, who have heard the rumors about the lion went to see what it all was about, together with his girlfriend. They arrived to the school and the guy went inside the territory. He then spotted a lion in the window who was overlooking the street. The student started play the ape behind the lion – showing him funny faces and then turning his back to the lion and bending down. Nina says that at that time the lion was staying with their assistant Sasha, who exactly in this moment went away to get some snack or pack of cigarettes from a store. Earlier those days they were training a lion for a scene in the movie when people play the ape for him and then he runs on them and puts his paws on their shoulders. Then he had to  walk away – according to the screen play. So this time the lion was already trained – he pushed the window glass and ran on to the dude. The dude was scared to the ground, so was his girlfriend waiting outside. She became shouting “Help!Help! Lion is tearing up my boy!”. Same moment there was a policeman walking back from his job. He has heard the shouting girlfriend and ran to them. When he saw a student on the ground and the lion above him he started shooting.

    Ultimately it was neighbors fault. If he hadnt aggravated the animal it probably wouldnt be so furious to fall off the shelf and attack the woman.

    That’s the thing – probably. You never know with animals how they may react to surroundings. You may expect some things, the regular behaviour, but you cannot know for sure.

    I knew a guy in Rhodesia, he had 3 lions, but on a farm. He never had any trouble with the terrorists. The rule was never turn your back and never run. But even on a farm out in the open the smell was really bad. That must have been absolutely terrible in a flat.

    Certainly was.

    well it was very strange and nice story, but yeah if you are keeping a giant beast which cant be hold by few peoples even, you need to keep them away from everyone very isolated or know him very well. and always be cautious he can kill you even if he dont know how to kill you.

  6. Rafael Santos says:

    The woman was right about her bad feelings towards the new lion. The first lion was saved from them, beautiful story. But the other one was on a flat just to satisfy the family when they miss the lion pet of them. Obviously this was going to end in a bad way…

    This was amazing (and sad end) story thanks for sharing with us! If the neighbour is not acting that way maybe nothing happened. the tragedy was partly his fault.

    I do believe all of the concepts you’ve offered to your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices. May you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

    We shall not keep such animals as domestic animals because they are unpredictable and very dangerous to have in the same enclosure with humans. Keeping them in the zoo could have been helpful for both the animal and those killed.

    Geez. The first lion was the couple’s fault. and the second one is neighbour’s fault. This is not the family fault but rather the outsider’s fault. Great.
