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.
