Bacio della Morte

The king of the jungle doesn't frighten the lion whisperer
Animal behaviourist Kevin Richardson has such an intimate bond with big cats that he can spend the night curled up with them without the slightest fear of attack.

Richardson, 32, who is based in a wildlife conservation area near Johannesburg in South Africa, works his unusual magic on other species too. Cheetahs, leopards and even unpredictable hyenas hold no threats for him.

This will stay impressive and everyone will be amazed with this guy---until the day the announcement is made that some big cat bit off his face, or takes off his whole head. I can see this ending up like the Grizzly Man, remember him. He's the guy who felt he was enchanted and destined to live among and protect the grizzlies; that is, until one day when someone flew into his camp and found him turned into a big pile of grizzly doo-doo. His beloved bears killed and ate him.
I don't find this all that impressive. They call me the guinea pig whisperer. I might start my own reality show.

I thought the exact same thing when I saw this story. You're so right. I wonder when the cats will turn on him. When will they get it right? The wild animals have AKJ on their minds?
