I know a lion keeper who lives in northern ontario, they are awesome animals and require very experienced and knowledgable keepers with huge enclousures for them. Even hand raised (as his are) they are dangerous, I told him about this post and he said he couldn't believe a lion sold for a $1000.00 us, in fact he sold one of his hand raised adults to Walt Disney for $500, 000.00 us and on friday at an exotic animal auction I saw a cub sell for $20, 000.00 cdn!!! $1, 000 us, thats like buying an albino ball python for $500.00! As for zoos they are not always so eager for a MALE lion as the usually already have one and two do NOT get along. Really big egos
