Girl Has No Fear of Lions

Girl Has No Fear of Lions
While a visit to the wildest section of a zoo can be frightening for some kids, a New Zealand kid has proved to the Internet that “little” doesn’t necessarily mean “easily scared.” The video of her confronting a lion at the Wellington Zoo earned her the title of “the world’s littlest lion tamer.”
Naturally, there was a safety glass wall between Sofia Walker, 3, and the lion Malik, but that did nothing to diminish the ferocity with which the animal tried to get at the girl with his paws. It paused and then continued to strike at the glass making his anger manifest – yet failing to get the undaunted girl to cringe away from the sight.
The Wellington Zoo’s Paul Hatton explained that the threatening pawing was intended to show that Malik wasn’t going to share his breakfast with the girl.
