When Kevin planned to reunite with his two favorite cats he decided to take a crew and lots of GoPro’s to record the amazing event. Never before had the GoPro technology been put to such a rigorous test, and only time would tell if they were up to the task.
Kevin was understandably nervous at his planned visit to see Meg and Amy again, it had been years since they last saw him, and he wasn’t quite sure how they would react. These animals are after all wild, and extremely dangerous.
They hunt prey to survive, and to them, humans are just one more thing on the menu. This day and age it is extremely rare for people to be mauled by lions. Most adventurers who go on safari realize the dangers and take every precaution possible to stay safe, and hopefully alive.
