Like a fool, I always kept the kids away from the lions, instilling fear and prejudice into those innocent young minds.
I was a part of the problem, not the solution.
Don’t be silly. Of course, lions are not to be trifled with. But if you’ve ever owned a Siamese cat - as I did - they can be spookily intuitive about human feelings. In any case, the king of the jungle scared off the human predators. Good story.
