Another example of the power of social media.
I subscribe to Naked Capitalism, as much for the Antidote du Jour, as for the fine economic commentaries. In my inbox of the 16th December was this wonderful antidote. A quick Google search shows that these pictures are spreading like wildfire around the world’s email servers. Not without reason.
Maybe these pictures resonate in all of us when we long for some simpler way of life …..
This Ranger is assigned to prevent poaching around the wildlife refuge area of Lanseria, South Africa. The way these animals interact with him is absolutely stunning! The lions seem to know he’s there to protect them. His charm works with hyenas and cougars too. Hyenas are usually vicious. Check out the pictures taken in the river – amazing because lions hate water.
As they say, don’t try this at home!
We’ll save the rest for another time. Meanwhile if anyone knows the name of this Ranger, please let us know.
