A little toddler with a lollipop and a young lion sat together at the television studio in Mexico but things didn’t end well.

This is how it looked live on Mexican television. Somehow, everyone managed to remain calm when the young lion attacked the toddler.   

A recording from a talk show in Mexico (filmed in 2003 but only published now) is flooding the web in the last few days.

In the show, one can see a mother and her little daughter with a lion tamer and a young lion. At a certain point, the lion leaps on the girl as he grasps her and tries to pull her towards him.


Luckily for the girl, the lion was too young and weak to overcome the pull of his tamer from one side. The terrified mother from the other side finally releases her unscathed yet with tears of panic.
