More info because I know I had questions the first time I saw it: https://www.buzzfeed.com/kimberleydadds/these-photos-of-a-teenage-melanie-griffith-and-her-pet-lion https://www.considerable.com/entertainment/retronaut/when-movie-star-tippi-hedren-lived-with-lions/
Check out the film Roar (1981). Pretty sure it’s on YouTube. Starring Melanie Griffith and about 50 lions. It’s unreal. I could not believe it existed, or people were crazy enough to make it.
And it ends as most might have feared:
>Griffith received 50 stitches and underwent facial reconstruction after being attacked by a lioness. Although it was feared that she would lose an eye, she recovered without being disfigured.
