Hack:

  • While celebrating Leo's birthday, a rescued lion, the Kurdish man could be seen aggressively smearing the cake on the big cat's face
  • The lion then springs up, moves away from the group and tries to wipe the cake off his face. 

The CEO of Kurdish American Cooperation Organisation, Blend Brifkani enraged wildlife admirers across the world after an outrageous and cruel video of him smacking a cake on a domesticated lioness' face surfaced on the internet. 

While celebrating Leo's birthday, a rescued lion, the Kurdish man could be seen aggressively smearing the cake on the big cat's face leaving the creature surprised, exasperated and discomposed, much to the crowd's amusement.

The lion then springs up, moves away from the group and tries to wipe the cake off his face. 

The infuriating video has been making the rounds of social media, with people lambasting the man for torturing the big cat and evidently frantic for such pleasure. 

Following the shocking video, the man took to Instagram to issue an apology for his behavior, saying, "I have never intentionally intended to abuse Leo, moreover, I would never want to hurt him in any way."  

The man further went onto narrate his self patronising story of how he rescused Leo the lion as a cub when he was 'alone, small and weak'

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I have never intentionally intended to abuse Leo, moreover, I would never want to hurt him in any way. The footage shows pure emotions of overwhelmingness and excitement that I had while celebrating his birthday. He has grown to be my very best friend and I love him indescribably. When I found him in the wilderness, he was alone, small and weak without a mother. If he had gotten into the wrong hands, he wouldn't have made it alive. I provided him a safe home, a good environment, veterinary care and everything needed to sustain the lions health until he grew. My plan was never to keep him in captivity, but rather raise him until he was well enough and old enough to be let out into the wild again. I have build my organization on rescuing endangered animal species, raising them, providing them with all the care and treatment that they need and then releasing them back into their natural habitat. One of my yearly projects include releasing captivated wild bears into the mountains,where they belong. I admit, it was wrong for throwing a cake on the lions face, I have let my emotions of excitement take over me and I apologize to those whom I have offended. I’m not an animal abuser,I’m constantly working on projects that show how important animals are to me, especially Leo and how much I care for his well-being. I assure you that Leo is safe and will soon return to the wild. @babylonfm @animals.of.kurdistan @peta @respectanimalrights @save.big.cats @donnamaria1961 @end_wildlife_abuse
