LODG­ING WITH LIONS

ANNA BRAIN AN­I­MAL PLANET / 8.30PM

Pop quiz: If a big African lion is lick­ing its lips and walk­ing in your di­rec­tion, what should you do? If you an­swered, “wet pants and do a run­ner,” I’d say you’re quite sen­si­ble, and you’d cer­tainly be with the ma­jor­ity. But it turns out the lit­tle kitty is just happy and wants to play (yeah right, with a hu­man chew toy). Vol­un­teers at An­te­lope Park in Zim­babwe, which is a con­ser­va­tion ini­tia­tive, are there to ob­serve the big cats’ be­hav­iour, get­ting up close and even go­ing hunt­ing with them.
