Tourists at a safari park in Russia have been seen hugging and kissing a lionness.
Footage from Taigan Safari Park in Crimea shows a family, including a child, driving without even windows for protection before getting up and close with the fearsome cats.
Lioness Lola goes for a cuddle with one of the group as he sits in an open-sided vehicle, just inches from a child.
The beast is pulled away by world famous lion whisperer Oleg Zubkov, 50, owner of the park, with his bare hands.
The lioness also sought to cuddle a young woman who moved away as Zubkov, seen in the green shirt,pulled her away.
