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.
He says he was happy as never that the place has metalfences.
This place has unique white lions from South Africa, uniqueto ex-Soviet zoos and parks.
Hope you liked the story and might want to visit it nexttime you are in Crimea.
