Kevin Richardson

Südafrikaner lebt seit 13 Jahren unter Löwen

Der König der Tiere trägt ein Hemd, hat zwei Beine und einen südafrikanischen Pass: Tiertrainer und Autor Kevin Richardson lebt seit 13 Jahren mit einem Löwenrudel. Hin und wieder bekommt er dabei auch die Zähne seiner Kuscheltiere zu spüren.

Sie nennen ihn den "Löwenflüsterer", "Kevin Löwenherz" oder den "König der Löwen": Der 36-jährige Verhaltensforscher, Tiertrainer und Autor Kevin Richardson arbeitet in einem privaten Wildpark in der Nähe von Johannesburg.
