Kevin Richardson works as an animal behaviorist in a wildlife conservation area near Johannesburg of South Africa. He is widely famous for his intimate relationship with lions, cheetahs, leopards and even unpredictable hyenas without the slightest fear of attack. Kevin started his job ten years ago when he reached a conclusion that lions could be treated as a friend of human-beings.
Kevin said he felt most confident with animals he had known since birth and could become a close friend with any lion less than a year old when it was still flexible enough to accept him as part of its own life. The fact is that he does not use sticks, whips or chains because it may be dangerous for the animals.
Kevin thought working at the wildlife conservation zone is his passion, not a job. He loves lions so much and often treats them with high respect.
