While a wild cat chasing down prey sounds perfectly reasonable, one who sprints to fetch sticks might appear a little bizarre. However, that is definitely precisely what Serabie, a rescued adult lioness at the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa’s Limpopo province, loves to do.
In the recently released video, the stunning lioness’s keeper sometimes appears tossing sticks covering the fence for Serabie to retrieve. To the utter bewilderment of her male counterparts, Tau and Raka, the majestic animal chases down each with a ferocity the cats usually reserve for hunting. In just one instance, Serabie even rises an allegedly fragile tree to say the dear twig. Although there is no information about how the wild cat acquired her fetching skills or how her keeper discovered them, she actually is better web marketing than most dogs.
