Dogs Help Train Lion Cubs to Play at Wild Animal Sanctuary

The cubs at this Colorado animal sanctuary in Keenesberg are being brought along by a half-a-dozen dogs.

They love playing and every tussle with the dogs is a part of a learning process in order for them to survive in captivity, where the male lions would not allow them now.

“Just playing by themselves would be like having a child that was raised in a closet and never seeing the outside world. So, all these things make a big difference to these guys in getting them developed and getting them ready to go to the lion pride,” sanctuary director Pat Craig told NBC’s WCSH6.com.
