Petite Woman Is Best Friends With Big Cats | BEAST BUDDIES

ANNEL SNYMAN: My name is Annel Snyman, I’m 35 years old. I’m the owner of Loebies Predator
Park and I’m outside of Bela-Bela. ANNEL SNYMAN: I started the park in 2009 with my first servals and now 9 years later, we
are now established predator park. ANNEL SNYMAN: To manage the park, it’s really, it’s hard work and I have a dedicated staff.
Neil is my assistant or the head guy. ANNEL SNYMAN: The park is visited by a lot of public and school groups. We try to educate
people personally about all the cats. A lot of the feedback that I get from guests is,
“Do I trust my lions?” ANNEL SNYMAN: I know they can turn on me anytime and you don’t know what’s going on in
his head. You don’t know if he is not feeling well. I’m not scared but I’m just cautious. NEIL VAN DEVENTER: You can’t be scared going in around the animals. You need to have respect, otherwise they feel it and then you think you’re higher
than they are or bigger than they are and they want to show you who is boss. ANNEL SNYMAN: There’s always someone outside
the enclosure when I’m inside the enclosure. Feeding time, there is both always two; outside
and inside. So, we always have a back up with the gates and if I’m working with the animals.
Everyone can bite, everyone can attack; everyone is dangerous on his own level. NEIL VAN DEVENTER: And I was very, very close
to the animals. We have a very special bond and relationship with each other. ANNEL SNYMAN: I have 17 South African predators
and scavenger species on the farm and there’s 35 animals in the park. My relationship with
the animals all differ; everyone has their own way of talking to you, everyone has a
different personality. The banded mongoose is they are very sociable, so they love to
give you all their attention. ANNEL SNYMAN: Pierre-the honey badger, you need to be loud because he is always busy. ANNEL SNYMAN: My house is actually in the
middle of the park that we call it the zoo house. Currently, animals living in my house
is Pierre the honey badger and the cubs, the lions cubs are staying in my house. When the
animals is in my house, they can get up to mischief and Pierre loves to go into the closets,
take out all the clothes, to climb on top of the sofa, watch some TV. ANNEL SNYMAN: I do have a few scars and stories
to tell, but that was not of aggression. So for 220 kilograms to jump on top of me, you
get, your nose broke, that’s normal. So, but, no aggression. They don’t know they’re
bigger than you are, they think you’re part of the pride, you’re part of the family.
And they give you cuddles and they jump you and that’s normal for them. ANNEL SNYMAN: So for me to raise a baby from
small and I can raise him up as big animals and they still love you. I do it because the
passion they have and my passion for them and the love they give me.

  88. Dark Angel says:

    I totally support this cuz these people actually know what they're doing and isn't this park in Africa cuz if so dude it's not even technically a park I mean you're still connected to the nature in the wild of the area you just got them in a gated area so it's not that different if you really think about it

  89. Dark Angel says:

    the way of how to keep for yourself from getting attacked is by respecting an understanding the animal which she's obviously got this she understands them she respects them and she's cautious but not scared there's the one thing they can sense any big Predator can sense that
