The Ranger


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. 

A very brave man! I wouldn’t take the job no matter how much I am offered! :-)

It is truly amazing and it makes me feel warm inside to see man and wild animals commune together like this without fear. This was what it should have been as nature intended. A glimpse of what it must have been like for Adam before the banish from the Garden of Eden. Thanks for uploading the photos. It is beautiful to see.

Hello Vincent

Amazing pictures, but when I see those kind of pictures with the text, I think: is it really true?
I have searched on the interent and found this pictures on several sites on the internet, everywhere with almost the same text, and what is strange about it, nowhere a name of the Ranger, do you know the name? Or within what organisation he works? Is he really a ranger?

If his job is to protect those animals he failed totaly.... because he making pets of them, animals who aren't afraid for men, next time those animal see a men they walk right into a big gun...
