Video: Would you let your kids get this close to a wild lion?

AOL Travel

A group of parents have been labelled idiotic for allowing their children to hang halfway out of a car window to take close-up pictures of wild lions.

A young boy and a girl were allowed to take the pictures of the two lions in the road.

The incident was filmed at the Kruger National Park, and the male lion can even be seen growling and sneering at the children.

According to the Daily Mail, users on LiveLeak blasted the parents for their actions, with one writing: "That lion could have jumped up and grabbed one of those kids in a split second."

Another wrote: "This is very irresponsible behaviour by the parents of these children!

"Please obey all rules if you visit a wildlife park! These animals are not tame and will attack if provoked!"
