In a series of saddening recent images – Lion & Safari Park, based in Lanseria, South Africa – appear to have not fulfilled their previous guarantees that they would stop all lion cub interactions, as there is evidence to suggest that they are now offering tourists the opportunity to pet lion cubs at their new park.
In 2015 Lion & Safari Park issued a statement to the world that they would cease lion cub petting at their new facility due to the public backlash against them. It seems they have now gone back on their promise. More lion cubs are now being used for tourist entertainment.
