    AN ECCENTRIC Frenchman lives with SEVEN lions and tigers right outside his front door - and he looks after them on his own. For the last 27 years, 68-year-old Remy Demantes has owned a private rescue sanctuary for big cats, taking care of the injured animals and treating them as pets. Residing in Ouzouer-sur-Loire, France, Remy fell in love with exotics in 1986 when he saw the close bond his friend had with his domesticated panther - inspired by their relationship, Remy decided to build upon his current property and make sure his home was at the centre of his animals. Fast-forward to 2018 and Remy could not imagine life without his beloved pets, spending hours each day hand-feeding them, taking them for walks and generally kissing and cuddling their furry coats.

      I know what he’s saying so uhhh yeah is he ".… oh no 🤦‍♀️ god dang it

    2. Mr. Mellow

      You speak French I speak French to I fell good for him but I don’t want the tiger to hurt him like he’s my family and I just hate tigers 🐅 so I hate them cuz I think they might tern on u how u say it agin oh well I just don’t want my family to get hurt

    3. Shaggy 207

      He ran a nightclub, loves "kitties", and looks unmistakable... Ron Jeremy's been hiding in France!

    4. Bhavik Bhandola

      So you need to get with them when they're cubs and let them grow into the big gigantic cats they are..

    5. kasa

      If someone wants to actually help these animals, just donate or work for actual wildlife sanctuary where there's space and professional staff to take care of the animals. Also rehab and release to wild for animals you can release. To me it feels like he just wanted to own some big cats. I mean I'm definitely no expert on wild animals, but I have watched quite a bit of videos from actual parks/sanctuaries with wild animals. But video just made me uncomfortable.

      Lol your tigers are pussies they are getting torn to shreads 😂😂😂😂

    8. I_dont_ _even_know

      It feels off. Like he hurts them or something, like he tries to force them to be nice.

    9. Racket Tattoo

      5:42 dont mind him, he's just having an afternoon snack.

    10. Steven Taumoepeau

      Tames his 300kg Tiger with a wooden stick!

    11. Pupper Puppet

      Me: ‘oh I just have a cat and some other pets’ Him: *’I have 5 tigers and 2 lions’*

    12. African Pharaoh

      Like kevin Richardson said if you need to go in with a stick the you are not sure and don't have knowledge of these animals

    13. Frazzy Blue

      He has no idea what he’s doing and is obviously scared of them

    14. Frazzy Blue

      He’s not saving them, he’s keeping them trapped in a TINY enclosure for their whole lives! That’s so wrong!

    15. CaptainManzana

      This guys doesn’t seem like he is taking care of his animals mentally and physically

    16. deep152deep

      3.06 Ya that stick will be really helpful in case of an attack 🤤

    17. Nick Xavier

      Out of all these Lion keepers, I've seen Kevin Richardson understanding them very well!

    18. fateaglio

      hes talking about patience not passion at the end lol. bad tranlsation

    19. fm7 fm7

      Pablo escobar???

    20. Azuan Wan

      Semua penghuni hutan serang balik kalau manusia atau bunuh kawan2 kita di hutan lagi ingat sahabat kita di dalam hutan belantara.

    21. Beata Schoeman

      gonna carry around a massive stick

    22. Beata Schoeman


    23. Beata Schoeman

      walking around carrying a stick whilst with tigeers OWNING EXOTIC ANIMALS IS STUPID

    24. DeAnthony Patton

      I really respect what he's doing but he needs to have help. Hes not young and will eventually pass on so what happens to the animals and park? If he dies with no one to help then his big cats will die and his park will be gone. A lifes work lost for nothing. And yes his cats likely will die since it will be hard to place at other parks since they've only know this man all their life and to release them into the wild with no hunting experience is a death sentence. And as he said a accident can happen any day so if something does happen to him then the big cats will starve to death. Like i said really respect the guy alot but he can't be so shortsighted.

    25. Those Two Girls

      I feel bad he pulled that tigers tail really hard

    26. Atif MIr

      Those tigers are stunningly beautiful yet brutally savage.

    27. Tina Ghosh

      Great work

    28. tg blast

      Imagine walking around seeing this 0:16

    29. II Daylight II

      Oh you know just walking my tiger in the woods nothing interesting...

    30. Hannah Wiget

      It's kinda sad. The living conditions of that lion. The cage needs to be 100% bigger

    31. Murat Karakılıç

      Pablo escobar's money was buying so many lions and tigers

    32. Greenblood Evergreen

      egoist human. things like this makes me angry. this man need help.

    33. LifeIsMusic

      He didn't say " passionate" he said " PATIENT" ....

    34. A Status

      I want white tiger baby plsss give me

    35. Lara Zanette

      these animals can’t live in a cold place like that


      How is this even legal ??It's illegal in India

    37. lee hollebon

      I like goats 🐐 who else likes goats 🐐🤣🤣

    38. Hello World

      Wild animals aren't property, they don't need just food their pride and freedom are precious to 'em ; let ' em in their habitat they can deal with thier own business.

    39. issaciams

      This dude does not look legit. He basically has a bunch of pet lions and tigers which really is not good for wild animals to be. How in the world is this video getting so many likes when all the comments are negative? This guy is removing the dislikes for sure.

    40. The Aggressive Royal Bengal Tiger

      Look at that white tiger..it is so beautiful and strong one


      Why 383 dislike?

    42. wisdom seeker

      He's an *idiot* . He'll end up like Grizzly Man.

    43. Mad Max

      He is old. He has few more years to live. He needs someone with him to feed them or let these animals live in the wild where they should be.

    44. chado1919

      so i'm no expert but isnt trying to taim/train them a bad Idea in general, cause in order to do that u need to be Boss right and if you are Boss you need to keep your dominant Position up right so basically a little trip and you are dead?! i think i'd prefer to be just friends with them...

    45. chado1919

      so if i pet my Cat right on the Spot of her Back where the tail starts she goes full ahegao Mode ...wonder how big cats would react O.O

    46. trio's

      I hope they eat you one day and set free and eat all your neighbors as well

    47. trio's


    48. Ahmad Alfian

      I love big cats

    49. nevzeethewizard


    50. Flix Arber

      this is so sad.... u are not accepted by them, thats why you have to hit them with the stick, and they dont have enough space, they need to run...........

    51. braveheart musliman

      Strange people🙄

    52. Megan Allen

      Animals shouldn't be kept in these cramped condition

    53. Capt Jack Sparrow

      He looks like young Pablo Escobar

    54. E. N.Akasha

      i dont think he has any real idea....sure experience,but judging their body language,he doesnt have the space either...

    55. Mylena Jaime

      That's Nothing, that's easy ,i live around humans .

    56. Jamal Otero

      You should wear a jacket with big eyes on the back at all times to see if that stops them running after you when your back is turned.

    57. Spongeblonde1

      “I’m alone looking after my animals”..No sir, your animals are looking after you, to make the wrong move..I hate to see these majestic animals in such small enclosures! They dont even get a choice as to where the live..I commend his efforts, but how would you like to be greeted with a stick everyday! Tigers are VERY sensitive creatures! If you need the stick, then maybe this isnt the gig for you! Might as well walk around in a steel suit!😏😑🐯💖😻

    59. Neonmirrorblack

      This is a very stark contrast to The Lion Whisperer, who not only has an actual full sanctuary (in Africa) for the lions to roam around in, those that he raised trust him completely, and he also does not have the cynicism this guy has around them. Might help that TLW also has a degree in zoology though. He even fully acknowledges too that one day there might be an accident, but they hasn't been one yet, and he's not going to live life around them worrying about it.

    60. Marcos Villavicencio

      4:32 the male lion is the most intimidating of them all.

      1. paul cooper

        The male lion is absolutely hideous.

    61. shubham kumar

      Nothing i live with 5 taddy dogs

    62. skopevideo

      I love this video as my 10 lb tabbi cat has the same mannerisms

    63. Kelly Xiong

      I wonder what would a cutie tiger do if I say “meow” ...nah probably the tiger just meow back at me...🐅🐅🐅 beside it’s an pussy cat after all lol 😆

    64. 5P

      Beautiful cats!!!

    65. Lee Highland

      When you have to lock up big cats to save them from going extinct, you know something is wrong. I think the lion looks desperate for company. The whole thing is sad, very sad.

    66. hoangnguyen dieuanh

      A cat lover; I admire what you have been doing for them until now at your late age. Wish you good health and hope that there will soon be some cat lover come to share the daily hard work with you. These magnificent creatures became extinct in my country! Sadly

    67. Thatpunjabiguy

      Escobar .?? 😆😆😆

    68. Mr. Caveman

      I know people need to conserve tigefs and lions but almost every animal park does that there are other animals that need our help not only big cats but I do congratulate you for protecting animals

    69. Sagger Mail

      This man just wants them as pets he doesn't care about saving them from extinction.
