Seeing a juicy opportunity to have some fun, a very playful lion cub at the Cornellskop Animal Training Farm in Western Cape, South Africa stealthily sneaks up on a beautiful but distracted border collie, giving the dog enough of fright to send him running in the opposite direction. According to Shaun Swingler, the person who posted the video, Cornellskop is a “fully licensed farm that trains animals for work in films and television commercials”.
The farm is run by a team with more than two decades of professional animal wrangling experience. All animals on the farm are loved and cared for and completely socialised to one another and play together often – as can be seen in the clip. In addition Cornellskop Animal Training Farm works very closely with conservation authorities as well as welfare associations to care for rescued and unwanted animals.
