Life With The Lions

Meet James Jablon, who is spending the entire month of January living inside a lions’ den:

What’s James’ deal? He operates a wildlife rehabilitation facility, and wants to raise money and awareness, so what better way to do it than to sleep and eat with a pair of African lions in their den? I don’t know, maybe doing an e-mail blast or Facebook fundraising might be a little, you know, saner?

But he’s chosen to do it this way, which is apparently working because you’re hearing about it. He says he’ll sleep next to the lions, eat only when they eat, and slowly worm his way into their hearts. Where he’ll go to the bathroom, they don’t say and I’m pretty sure I don’t want to know.

Oh, and he’s streaming live video. Watch at your own risk:

This could go so wrong at any time.

    @Sawyer No, sir you are not. I was just about to say “Get this dude a copy of Grizzly Man!”

    I’m not the only one getting flashbacks of Grizzly Man here, am I?
