A South African woman was so moved by the plight of the local white lion population that she has decided to live with two of them for a fortnight.
Jenny Schmidt entered the lion’s den on March 25 and will only leave to take the occasional shower.
During her ”stay”, she will eat, sleep and spend her days with 18-month old male Zuba and seven-month old Cobra, two white Lions at the Mystic Monkeys and Feathers Wildlife Park in Pretoria city.
Jenny will be monitored and will keep wearing the same clothes so the Lions won’t think of her as a new arrival and potentially attack her.
She will live on ice cream and toasted sandwiches for the time being
