Often time people who become obsessed with animals invent a scenario in their minds that animals are actually just like people and that they one of those special people who has a bond with animals and they will no longer be animals in their presence they will be like Disney cartoon characters. Animals are wonderful creatures but they do not have the same thought processes as humans, nor do wild animals fall in love with humans. Every year a few people are killed this way and its senseless. The Grizzly guy was like that, he believed that bears adopted him but in fact they ate him for lunch. We don't know why the lion did this, and perhaps we never will unless we understand that it was being a lion and not a fuzzy friendly cat who wanted to thank the volunteer personally and bond intellectually. Going in the cage only meant lunch was delivered in 30 minutes or less that day. Its not funny, its sad and its real, recognizing reality might have prevented this.
