Actress Tippi Henderson and her family wanted to make a film about lions. In order to do so, they had to know more about these majestic creatures. So they followed the advice of animal trainer Ron Oxley and began living with them.
The family got this idea after returning from their holiday in Africa. It is when “The Birds” actress and her actress daughter Melanie Griffith decided that they wanted a pet lion. Her husband Noel Marshall was supportive and they got the pet.
One would think that living with a lion might not be a good idea, but it seemed to go quite well for the family, but kind of well in a bizarre way.
