Jim Jablon has owned a wildlife center in Florida for awhile. His center recently fell on hard times—who hasn't, really?—and so Jablon decided, by some logic I don't fully grasp and probably never will, to spend the month of January with two full-grown lions to bring attention to his center's lack of funds.
I know times are tough, but man, there are other fundraisers. Like, I don't know, car washes and bake sales and raffles.
Says the story:
It seemed like a clever idea at first, [Jablon] joked during an interview, but after the first four days he's not so sure.
You don't say?
Is there really any way this guy survives? I mean, a whole month? Just look at this quote from the source story:
"I can handle them even though they weigh 225-250 pounds, but once they get going and they realize it's two-against-one, I usually end up on my back."
"I can handle them"? I CAN HANDLE THEM? I can handle the 225-pound beasts, but ONLY until they REALIZE it's TWO-AGAINST-ONE? Never mind that they also realize they are TWO HUNDRED FIFTY POUND FLESH-EATING BEASTS.
Just look at this picture:
