The world is just like a Jungle, you either rumble and dominate or lock-up and fade away. The king of the Jungle i.e. Lion is the most dominant animal of the jungle. The sleep of the lion is the heart of every courageous man. But here, in case of the Zoo Keeper, the situation was absolutely different. The Zoo keeper was so passionate of living with the lions that he spent almost five weeks with his Lions. He just planned to climb into the enclosure with the beasts at the Zoo where he was the Zoo keeper.

Lion king: Zoo keeper Alexander Pylyshenko shares a tender moment with an African lioness as he rests his head and affectionately scratches her neck

A 40 years old Alexander Pylyshenko, spent his most life on studying lions. He believes that he can easily spent 5 weeks with the beast in his own private zoo located in Ukrainian city of Vasylivka, around 500 km from the capital Kiev. 

During the first week, whenever anybody hears that a fearless man lived with lions for 35 days, all were taking it as a joke as when the lion’s are bumping up against people and their cattle, the conflicts are really inevitable. They need large herbivores to survive and for giving birth to cubs, so whenever people retrieve wildebeest and Zebras with the cattle and sheep, it is just a constituent of time up till deal livestock results.

During those five weeks on the cage, the Zoo keeper tried to study the behavior of the lions. One of the lioness in the zoo was pregnant; the Zoo Keeper was so desperate to see the Cub so he spent more time with those lions.

He thought the living conditions of lions are just same as the living conditions of the human beings that is why he thought of living with them and when he started living there, the situation was exactly the same, he sleeps on the wooden floorboards and eat the food which were given to them through bars.

There were seven web cameras which were fitted in the cage as the experience of this Zoo keeper will broadcast in the reality show, and on the internet too. All of the people who are living in that place were so excited and there were so much tourists who came just to see him what he is doing, the people were clicking pictures and making videos of the lion and the fearless zoo keeper.

The owner of the Zoo has installed a toilet and a shower under the cage so that he can easily maintain his personal hygiene. But at the same time he was facing many challenges and was having so much difficulty as there were no shampoo, shower gels, creams, soaps, cigarettes, beers as the animals don’t like sharp odors.

He was really feeling bad because of these things but whenever he hugs the lion, he just forget all his difficulties, the Zoo keeper was very happy living with the lions as he find peace living with them.

The Zoo keeper in the cage also thought that by staying in the cage, he will raise money for the charity and highlights the problems which are being faced by the lions so to improve the
living condition of the lions.
