Good Kick, Kitty! Lions Have World Cup Fever at Israeli Zoo
Lions at Israel's Ramat Gan Safari have caught on with the World Cup craze. With the matches beginning in Russia, zookeepers decided to get the big cats in on all the World Cup excitement. Samburu, an 8-year-old lioness, was especially enthusiastic about the sport. She demonstrating excellent ball handling, trapping and defensive skills. Some of her fellow lions didn't seem to care as much, but that's their loss. Samburu looked like she was having the time of her life.
