On a random Tuesday afternoon, I needed to pick up some cat litter from the local pet store…

It’s just a regular pet store that I’ve visited numerous times. I walked in, looked around and found some cat food and cat litter.

When I turned around, I kind of froze because I looked right into the eyes of a small lion!

There was a LION just walking around in the pet store, and it was only five meters away from me, which is just insane!

There were a few people in the store, and some were petting the lion. I couldn’t believe my eyes, it’s so dangerous. Even a trained young lion can be dangerous.

The guy who worked there asked if I wanted to take a picture, uhm no thanks! I paid for the cat litter and got the hell out of there!
