The Lion Queen

   There are some females who command, and demand, the utmost respect and, toward whom, any failure to comply doesn't bare thinking about. . . here's a man who can!


   Meet Kevin Richardson, aka the lion whisperer, he is a 38 year old South African, born in Jo'burg, of English decent. His father is from Berkshire and his mother, was born in South Africa also of English parents. 


   Take a look at this, it is a little bit special. . . but rather him than me!  Una leona muy especial y sus cachorros. . . 



   Kevin has a way ~ no, he has a talent, a very special talent, not only with lions and lionesses, but with other members of the big cat family such as cheetahs and leopards too ~ he has worked his magic on all, and has even been accepted into a pack of Hyenas



   Yes, he’s part of the pride. . .



   and if you want to look a little deeper, here's another clip



   and a link to his home page with more. . .




   Over a 15 year span the population of lions in Africa has dropped from about 350,000 to an estimated 25,000.


   Lion “hunts” (sorry for the moronic use of the word) in South Africa bring in more than 90 million dollar (£60 million) a year, and these foreign, so called, “hunters” (yes, you guessed it, more than half of these are American) killed more than 46,000 animals just from Sept. 2006 to Sept. 2007alone!


   These inadequate men will pay up to $40,000 to shoot a lion ~ I know who I’d declare open season on ~ it wouldn’t be the lion!
