Well, not totally into the wild. Let's first tell a fewfacts about this place. Taigan is a lion park in Crimea. Over fifty lions livethere, making it the biggest lion park in Europe.  In winter lions stay inwarm houses because its cold outside and snow is not a rare thing in Crimea.But in spring all those fifty African lions are being released into a"wilderness" - fifty hectares (123 acres) of Crimean land. Let's see, thanks to Crimean photographer Yury Ugans:

Lions there roam absolutely free, like they do in safariparks in African countries. Visitors have  a few protected bridges fromwhere they can watch the animals, but in general nobody forces animals to obey- they go around absolutely free. A few days ago they were released out oftheir winter "hotel".

Yuri says that male lions started attacking each other in aninstant in order to fight for territory.
