Video of a lion casually hopping into the tourist vehicle at Taigan Safari Park in Crimea has been surfacing over the internet.
People have been going berserk over the big cat's casual strolling in the tourist vehicle. The video initially released by Taigan Safari Park and posted by CBS News on Twitter shows a lion who was initially sitting in a side, walking up to the tourist vehicle and hopping on to the driver of the vehicle and park owner Oleg Zubkov. He was eventually squeezed out of the vehicle.
The tourists were rather shocked to see the two-year-old Filya walking up to them and entering the vehicle.
Filya is a two-year-old lion in Crimea's Taigan Safari Park and the video was released by CBS News on Twitter.

The tourists unsettled a bit but seemed to enjoy the moment while being in shock by the casual entry. The people sitting inside the vehicle shot the whole incident on their phone. Filya did not hurt anyone and people were seen enjoying the moment while being completely terrified. The lion, on the other hand, was joyfully playing with the tourists. The owner of the park is seen in the video with his constant efforts to remove the big cat from the vehicle. Zubkov is seen taking the cat out of the vehicle and making sure that things do not go south. Eventually, all the tourist expect one had to exit the vehicle before the lion made an exit.
After the video surfaced over the internet, people came up with different reactions to the whole incident.

You can’t place a box out in the open and expect a cat to stay out of it.

My love of animals says yes, give me a cuddle but my head says, I'm food, it wants to eat me and I wouldn't stand a chance.

Earlier a woman was reportedly hurt in the same Park by a different lion weeks ago.
