VIDEO: Lion in Crimea safari park gets inside tourist cart

International

VILNOHIRSK, Crimea (KXAN) — Not content to merely watch tourists drive by, a lion at a safari park in Crimea tried to take over the wheel.

In a video released from Taigan Safari Park, a cart drives by a lion and slows as she stands up and walks over. Then, the lion known as Filya climbs on top of the driver, eventually pushing him out of the seat. Later, she climbs in the back and starts cuddling and licking the tourists.

The park is reportedly famous for offering visitors more proximity to its lions. However, that can sometimes be dangerous, as this video was filmed weeks after a woman was hurt by a different lion in the park.
