"Yes, I came face to face with a lion once. To make matters worse, I was alone and weaponless..."

"Goodness! What did you do?"

"What could I do? First I tried looking straight into his eyeballs, but he kept crawling up on me. Then I thought of plunging my arm down his throat, grabbing him by the tail and turning him inside out, but I decided it would be too dangerous. Yet, he kept creeping up on me; I had to think fast..."

"How did you get away?"

"I just left him and passed on to the other cages."
