See What Happened To A Tourist Who Stretched Out His Hand To Pet A Lion (WATCH)

A shot footage which shows the moment a tourist in Serengeti Nation Park in Tanzania almost had a nasty run-in with a lion, after leaning out of an open tour van window to pet a lion. In the video clip which was shared on Youtube with the caption, ‘Still the dumbest tourist ever?‘, two of the tourists in the tour van used to take tourists around the park leaned forward to reach out of the open window, outstretching their arm to pet a lion that is minding its own business on the grass, its back facing them.

The beast then turns towards the duo and stares at them, which is when the second unnamed tourist – who sat in the window seat – began to feel uneasy. The lion then jumped up and roared as the second tourist struggled to slide the window shut following a voice from inside the vehicle that said: “Close the window.” After some scrambling, eventually they manage to close the opening – the lion still visible in the distance, staring into the car at the people.
