Crazy Dutch 'Lionwhisperer' Snuggles With Lions, Then Plays Soccer With Them

  • Jake O'Donnell

Kevin Richardson loves lions. He also loves football. Euro football — if he played American football with lions, well, this video would be NSFW. In an attempt to raise awareness for the big cats loss of habitat, food, poaching, and endangered status in west Africa (we threw that last part in there).

For every goal he scores against a pride of lions, SportsGrid will donate a soccer ball to Kevin Richardson’s wildlife habitat, because for real, these things just straight up eat the ball as soon as they get near it.
