Where's the water?
wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015
The water is in their shelters inside of the enclosures. There are also rivers in the area where they go walking if there's been enough rain.

Albino-ish lions. :-( I know that we are taught to think that that's a thing of beauty but, I can't see it. I see it as some malfunction that we for some reason try and nurture. they pretty much don't exist without the aid of human interaction. For some reason, it just doesn't seem right.

Animals in cages
wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015
This is a sanctuary. These animals were born in captivity at a canned hunting farm and were rescued by Kevin. If it weren't for him they'd be in far worse conditions and most likely dead. Some of the lions have medical problems. Take George for example who has metabolic bone disease, he can't run or jump well and his claws don't grow correctly. Kevin tries to make their lives as authentic to the wild as possible via large areas, longs walks, opportunity to hunt, etc. He takes good care of them. He even has a foundation that is preserving wild habitat. He genuinely cares about them.

Leave the animals alone and stop trying to pet them.
wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015
Im assuming this is your first visit to the channel. Thor was standoffish because he was hungry. Majority of the time they like Kevin's attention and will rub against him and sit with him. This is a sanctuary. These animals were born in captivity at a canned hunting farm and were rescued by Kevin. If it weren't for him they'd be in far worse conditions and most likely dead. Some of the lions have medical problems. Kevin tries to make their lives as authentic to the wild as possible via large areas, longs walks, opportunity to hunt, etc. He takes good care of them.

Thor is allowed to be a grumpy lion,cause I would be more than just that if I haven't eaten for almost a week,and plus the sickening heat on top of that, I would bite someone's head off probably if I was the mighty Thor,or any lion for that matter!!! Yeesh!?!! I better get something to eat!!!....Lol!! Much love from Calgary, Alberta, Canada!! 🇨🇦❤️🦁

You can tell Kevin truly loves his lions and everything he does is genuine. Other caretakers feed their animals snickers before filming so they're always a lot calmer and easier to use for content. Keep up the good work!

Free the lions to the wild, that's where they belong.
wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015
This is a sanctuary. These animals were born in captivity at a canned hunting farm and were rescued by Kevin. If it weren't for him they'd be in far worse conditions and most likely dead. Some of the lions have medical problems that would make life very difficult in the wild. Take George for example who has metabolic bone disease, he can't run or jump well and his claws don't grow correctly. Kevin tries to make their lives as authentic to the wild as possible via large areas, longs walks, opportunity to hunt, etc. He takes good care of them :)

You'd be grumpy too if you were captured and quarantined by those who think they know best.
wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015
He literally explained that Thor was hot and hungry. These animals were born in captivity at a canned hunting farm and were rescued by Kevin. If it weren't for him they'd most likely be dead. They were never captured. Some of the lions have medical problems. Take George for example who has metabolic bone disease, he can't run or jump well and his claws don't grow correctly. Kevin tries to make their lives as authentic to the wild as possible via large areas, longs walks, opportunity to hunt, etc. He takes better care of them compared to most places that have lions.

“Thor was not his usual happy-go-lucky self” That’s because it’s a Lion, stupid.
wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015
@Silus Hence why I said usually. Im not claiming that they have a one dimensional personality, no one does. Of course their moods are going to fluctuate. People's moods fluctuate as well. But more often than not an individual is going to have a behavior or part of a personality that is usually consistent. For both people and lions. If you look at any other video that Thor is in you'll see that he usually just walks around minding his own business and occasionally greets Kevin or another lion. He's not usually as grumpy as this video shows but because of the conditions(being hot and hungry) he was a little irritated compared to his usual self.
Silus
Silus 9 days ago
@wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015 “Usually Thor is nice and chill” No wild animal has a one dimensional personality. None. Human beings try to put this expectation on each other which is why people end up with shallow, weak personalities. More busy categorizing each other’s behavior than living and letting others live.
wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015
He literally explained that Thor was just hot and hungry. Usually Thor is nice and chill. They all have their own personalities and often times are very happy to see him as they come up to greet him with friendly noises and rubbing. Has nothing to do with what species he happens to be. Lions can be happy.

This poor lion was just doing what a male lion instinctively does. He was listening for other lions roars and scent marking “his territory.” It’s funny how this guy kept calling Thor rude, when in reality he’s the one trying to deter Thor from what his instincts are telling him to do.
wolfdude 123 & a proud ARMY since 2015
He's just joking around by calling him rude. Kinda like how you might call your dog rude if they ignore you. All in good fun.
