Mr Atif Saeed is a Pakistani photographer with a love for wildlife photography. In 2002 while shooting on the outskirts of Lahore he was able to Shoot an attacking Lion and says it was an incredibly thoughtless act. He says he left his car to take a picture of the lion, and he sat on the ground with the car door left open and the lion was only a jump away.
“The feel of the aggressive, approaching lion from the camera is something that can’t be described,” Saeed said in an interview with ABC News.
With the lion rushing towards him, Saeed managed to jump back in his car just in time and escape what could have been certain death.
“It was a pretty close encounter,” he recalled to the Daily Mail. “I was laughing afterwards at the time, but I don’t think I’d ever be able to do something like that again.”
