A tourist tried to pat a wild lion on the head — the lion was not impressed

People seem to forget that wild animals are just that: wild.

It should go without saying that one should never willingly touch, pat, or otherwise taunt any animal in the wild. Or attempt to for that matter. Some people visiting parks and refuges lack a general awareness of how wild animals interact with and react towards humans.

The National Park Service reminds visitors that if you cause an animal to move, you’re already too close. Never approach or pursue an animal in any circumstance (even for a selfie). If an animal does approach you, carefully back away and maintain a safe distance of at least 100 yards from certain predators, 25 yards from other wildlife.
