A lioness named Sirga doesn’t know what social range is. And every chance she obtains, she hugs Valentin Gruner.
And this is no coincidence: he is the most important person in her life!
do not Try this at home
Hugs are the most honest!
And everything started 10 years ago, when little Sirga was orphaned
The people are to blame: the lion cub’s moms and dads upset the farmers of Botswana a lot, so they were caught. Resettlement and adaptation attempts of wild killers were unsuccessful, they were eliminated. But in the process, Sirga was born, and after that Gruner established an experiment: he raised a “socially smart” beast.
Allow’s claim right away: the idea was a success
Sirga is not a domestic cat, she resides in freedom, she hunts
However the lioness with whom I learned as a child that it is not required to touch people and livestock, and then there will be not a problem

Sirga was assigned searching grounds with an location of 2000 ha, where she is the queen
There are no other lions there, so as not to be terribly influenced. Sirga is the biggest and therefore responsible predator on its land.
Sirga does not enable other people to approach her, but willingly wears a cam collar
The success of the “re-education” of the lioness provides Gruner’s coworkers hope to rescue other lions as well. If we can make contact with wildlife and start to coexist, the danger of their destruction will certainly go away.
