My thoughts? Insane, it's a friggen lion. I've tried to find a story behind these pics but have failed completely. if anyone has a link please share. I really have to know if it snacked on any family members ever....

Only help I can offer is the story of the cheetah at Perth Zoo.
A guide told me that the big cat had been hand reared, and had been known to chase a tennis ball - just like a dog.
Oh, and there was the orphaned hippo who thought it was a family pet.

Apparently it's Tippi Hedren and family as a promo for a movie (Roar?)

I'm pretty sure her husband and daughter were injured by lions in the filming
