Lion responds to a cuddle from favourite ranger

 Man is supposed to be in charge of beasts. God made it so.

This was proven some time ago when a lion refused to give way, obstructing the way in a conservation park in South Africa.

The lion remained in that position until Mike, its favourite ranger came along and gave it a nice long stroke at the mane.

  An official of the conservation park explains:

‘We cannot claim to ever know what lions are “thinking” but every evening the gate from Smokey’s camp is opened to the passage so that he can come and go as he pleases.
‘It also gives us some security too. Every morning when Mike comes in to work he has this ritual with Smokey to get him back into his own camp so we can use the passage for vehicles.
‘It is our belief that Smokey often delays this process for more attention from Mike, who is his favourite person.But after all, Smokey is a big cat, and we all know that everything with cats is on their own terms.’
