Living the 'Wild Life'

Apparently some people in Florida have lost their damn minds! Jim Jablon may be one of those people. This fellow decides the best way to raise money for a wildlife rehabilitation center is to live with 2 young 225-250lbs lions...oh and did I mention he'll do this for the whole month of January?

In all seriousness, Mr. Jablon is doing this for a noble cause. The wildlife rehabilitation center he's trying to help is having financial difficulties, and he wants to help them meet their operating costs. According to, "It costs about $75,000 annually to care for the 100 animals at the 14-acre center and Jablon says car washes and other small-scale fund-raisers are no longer sufficient. He hopes people visiting his website and watching the streaming video will feel motivated to make a donation. He expects to raise between $100,000 and $200,000." Extreme situations call for extreme measures. So best wishes to him in his endeavor.
