The man who cuddles big cats

MEET the daring animal lover who spends his days cuddling tigers and playing football with a pride of lions. Armand Gerber, 51, runs the Iron Throne Predator and Wildlife Park in South Africa, with the help of his wife, Beatrice. With more than 80 hectares of beautiful land, Armand houses 10 lions, three tigers, two leopards and a cheetah – in addition to porcupines, warthogs and smaller cats. Armand hand-feeds lion brothers, Rufus and Brutus, who each weigh a colossal 550lbs. He rescued the majority of his animals from places with bad publicity and his biggest dream is to provide a forever-home for those most in need.
