Filya, a tiny juvenile lion, entered a bus full of tourists at Taigan Park, Crimea. When the visitors were watching the lion and he walked in and gave them hugs, the lion showed no signs of aggression.
The lion, on the other hand, was not aggressive, since he did not attack any of the men or ladies. Instead, he went into the open van and began licking a number of people while massaging his face affectionately.
This video was released only a few months after a lady was attacked by a lion in the same park. I wouldn’t want to take any chances.
The tourists are seen playing and petting Filya, as well as taking lots of videos and selfies to document the rare event.
Last year, the park witnessed the birth of rare white lions.
