Huffington Post According to Russian-language newspaper Segodnya, Alexander Pylyshenko will live in the lions’ den at his small, private zoo in Vasylivka for the next year in order to raise funds for the construction of a rehabilitation center for lions and other big cats. He set his fundraising goal at 365,000 UAH (nearly $45,000). If Pylyshenko is able to live among lions for an entire year, he’ll surpass the current Ukrainian record of 35 days, which Pylyshenko himself set in 2011. At the time, the zoo owner lived in the same confines as two lions, sharing their sleeping quarters and their meals of raw meat, fed to the animals through the bars of the cage. Given the extended duration he plans to live among the lions, Pylyshenko will split his time between the lions’ cage and his country house, where the felines will also join him. In his leisure time, the zoo keeper plans to spend his days painting and writing a book about lions. As he did during his previous stint in the lions’ cage, Pylyshenko plans to broadcast video footage of his experience on his website. The date Pylyshenko plans to enter the cage is still undetermined. (He’s waiting on potential donors.) But it’s likely he’ll begin his quest within the next year.
Doesn’t Alexander Pylyshenko know that lions are killing people at a rapid rate over the last week? There is no good time to live with lions, don’t get me wrong, but lately they seem new pissed off than usual.
First a lion killed a woman in Africa while she was having sex with her boyfriend which gave the boyfriend a horrific case of blue balls, and then a lion killed a woman at a California animal sanctuary. The lions may have declared war on humans, so this is a terrible time for this lunatic zookeeper to play house with lions for a full year.
How long does Alexander Pylyshenko survive in the lions pen? My guess is that he is in a heap of trouble the second he goes for some of their food. I am setting the over/under on his death on seven weeks after entering the cage. I’ll take the under.
Bonus question: Who gets killed by a lion first Alexander Pylyshenko or Kevin Richardson?
