HuffPo- A Ukrainian zoo owner risked life and limb when he walked into a lions’ den in 2011 and didn’t come out until five weeks later. Now, Alexander Pylyshenko plans to live with lions again. But this time around, he’s pledging to reside among the large felines for one year. According to Russian-language newspaper Segodnya, Pylyshenko will live in the lions’ den at his small, private zoo in Vasylivka for the next year in order to raise funds for the construction of a rehabilitation center for lions and other big cats. He set his fundraising goal at 365,000 UAH (nearly $45,000). According to Russian-language newspaper Segodnya, Pylyshenko will live in the lions’ den at his small, private zoo in Vasylivka for the next year in order to raise funds for the construction of a rehabilitation center for lions and other big cats. He set his fundraising goal at 365,000 UAH (nearly $45,000). If Pylyshenko is able to live among lions for an entire year, he’ll surpass the current Ukrainian record of 35 days, which Pylyshenko himself set in 2011. At the time, the zoo owner lived in the same confines as two lions, sharing their sleeping quarters and their meals of raw meat, fed to the animals through the bars of the cage.
One of the questions last night on KFC Radio was “If you could kill one group of people, not meaning race or religion, but one specific niche of people, who would it be?” The Stoolie caller’s answer was zoo keepers. Which, at the time, I thought was weird. Whats wrong with zoo keepers? Sure they’re animal freaks but the zoo is fun when you’re a kid and shit. You need zoo keepers to run the zoo. Well suffice it to say I’m changing my answer. If Alexander Pylyshenko represents zoo keepers then I want them dead too. What a fucking asshole this idiot is. Eating raw meat and living with one of the most dangerous killers on earth for 45 grand. You can be a functioning retard and land a job paying close to that these days. Every idiot under the sun has a kickstarter online fundraiser set up for them that rakes in like $500,000. All you gotta do is be like really nice or really retarded or really homeless and people just give you six figures now. And this idiot is willing to risk life and limb for an entry level secretary salary. And another thing – don’t you think you’re getting a little cocky with your promise of a fucking year? Like last time you did a month and a week so you’re gonna dial it up to a goddam year? Lets start with like 60 days or something dude.
Good news is these lions are gonna eat him to death so nobody has to worry about killing him.
