Lion opens family’s car door with his teeth

Lion opens family's car door with his teeth

The lion may have appeared wild, but it had clearly learnt one or two things
about cars after years of watching curious visitors drive past.

As the white Toyota came to a halt in the Lion Safari Park in Johannesburg, it
slowly padded over while the family inside watched in excitement, unaware of
what was about to happen.

Thier glee turned to horror as the 300lb lion firmly took the rear door handle
with his teeth and pulled it open in one deft movement.

For several seconds the car remained still while the occupants digested the
shock of what had happened before finally hitting the accelerator and
driving off.

As they fled, the lion followed in pursuit until it reached the gates of the
enclosure. There it was finally held back by a warden who hurled stones to
shoo it back.
