South African Woman Who sleeps with a Lion


South African Woman Who Sleeps With A Lion 






A South African woman named Miekie van Tonder has showed her love for a lion from a baby cub of 5 days till date


Elsa later moved to an enclosure which she shared with two, slightly bigger, male lion cubs. Elsa who was 8 months then and had never interacted with lions before and wasn't used to their rough play but joined in and injured her neck.....




Miekie then went for her, and realized she had to go for an operation, but the money she had wasn;t enough to fix it. So she went for lion’s cloth, stayed in traffic and begged for money to operate her ‘pet’. After realizing the needed money, Elsa underwent a two hour operation which appeared to fix the problem but later started having problems with her balance.πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜„πŸ˜—πŸ˜„πŸ˜πŸ˜’πŸ€—

Miekie then took her home washes her, feeds her and cared for her till she totally recovered. 'At night she still sleeps with me. She cuddles up with me under the duvet. It's amazing sleeping with a lion,' she said narrating she has nothing to fear.For most of us, lions are best encountered from the safety of a safari vehicle or from behind a game fence.
But for one South African woman, she raised one cub like her own baby after it became separated from her mother.
Miekie van Tonder raised Elsa raised by hand in her home and even let her sleep in her bed so she could monitor her through the night.
As she grew older, Elsa moved to an enclosure which she shared with two, slightly bigger, male lion cubs.
But at eight months old, she had never interacted with lions before and wasn't used to their rough play but joined in and injured her neck.

She underwent a two hour operation which appeared to fix the problem but later started having problems with her balance.
Her condition meant she had to go to a conventional hospital in Roodepoort, near Johannesburg, for an MRI scan before undergoing further surgery to fix the problem.
Such was Ms van Tonder's dedication, her surrogate mother dressed up in a lion suit and collected money at the traffic lights of her home city Bloemfontein to fund the treatment.
Their bond remains a tight one with Ms van Tonder insisting she has nothing to fear by cuddling up to the giant cat at night.

'At night she still sleeps with me. She cuddles up with me under the duvet. "It's amazing sleeping with a lion"she said.....πŸ™‚πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜˜πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‡πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‚πŸ˜›
