    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.

      This guy needs to take advice of Kevin Richardson the real lion whisperer who loves his lions and animals and knows how to look after them

    2. Dheraj Vinod

      Your all animals are cute and beautiful

    3. knowledge is power

      This guy won't last too long around these big cats with that stick in his hand. Seem like it would make them very uncomfortable.

    4. Bowo elfindo

      The Great White Siberian Tiger looks so Powerfull

    5. jimmy youngblood

      let me know when they eat u

    6. Cassie Jamison

      You need to get someone there to help...what happens to them when you pass? They will be alone, transferred to a strange location and get stressed.....you are very lucky to have them and they you but they will out live you

    7. Peter Putnam

      Good lord did he say that big tiger weighs 660 pounds!? Could that be right? Thats insane, what animal could possibly fight that tiger, nothing would stand a chance ....

    8. Miss Debra

      "I'm alone raising them. No one wants to help me." I wonder why? Lol!

      1. Vinayak Shenoy

        He didnt say no one wants to help me. He said there are many people who want to help me but i myself dont want anyone to help me coz im afraid they might meet with an accident. This is what he said. See the video again properly.

    9. Alan R

      There is a translation error at the 6:10+ mark. He says that he is more "patient" and not more "passionate". Big difference. Thank you

    10. Itz_ Potato

      I love it when he says “NO”😂

    11. John Kroeger

      You are some kind of stupid

    12. edchan

    13. David pring

    14. David pring

      She doesn't like the camera

    15. Tony Sofaa

      all of y’all are just spreading negative energy and not even doing a thing to help besides a ineffective opinion. go do something to help these animals if you are so concerned

    16. WelcomeTo Life


    17. bill keane

    29. OriginalTheUsername

      He doesn't talk about "passion" he says patient, which means patience*

    30. OriginalTheUsername

      He said 1976* not 1986 (native french speaker)

    31. Andrew Taku

      4:34 I want to see that Male Lion Clearly... 😔 .... It looks Handsome

    32. JIMMY TAN

      not a good idea to raise big cats domastically, the belong to the wild nature, they were here before human being exist, we need to divide more bigger reservation area for them, very simple and easy to do, but some how some reasons that we r not doing well , don't see those wild cats's number increase, one day soon in the future, they will be gone--extinct

    33. Gustave Chillaud

      That guy have gallant

    34. Gustave Chillaud

      I love that lioness

    35. Mallory

      This is so sad. Poor cats pacing, they just want to be free or at the very least in a much larger enclosure. These people that claim to be saving these animals are actually doing it for more selfish reasons.

    36. Joyce Wambui Bernecker

      I hate seeing big cats in cages. I don't think he's helping them

    37. Gaboose

      Please dont breed ligers.

    38. supradip sen

      Atleast a couple of them are cross breeds. Ligers. Results of Lion and tiger mating. They become prone to several diseases and abnormalities and don't live long.

    39. DiamondBones007

      Just... WHY do people like seeing these animals in small enclosures?! It's disgusting.

    40. Rahul kumar Ram

      Wow Man

    41. Vikas Saklni

      Tigers look magnificent

    42. Eloy Antonio roa sanchez

      Unfortunately for this old French man, he has to carry a stick, showing fear to the wild exotic life. They had picked on that, it is obvious that they don't have respect for the old man. They will not hurt him but they will not repect him. For him, all of it started wrong in the cubhood stage with regard to respect, communication (listening to their body language to respect boundaries ), trust (he monumentally failed there, he does not trust them and that is where the fear came into existence ), attention, affection, love, taking care of (feeding, cleaning after them and grooming ), playing (keeping them from boredom, he also failed there ), friendship (he also failed there, lack of trust, carrying a stick, showing fear ), companionship (also failed there, he fills up the need of feeding but he does not fill up the spiritual, emotional and grooming need of a soul made ), bonding as a family member (if he failed in every thing else, except in feeding and cleaning, he also failed in bonding as a family member. He does not have a family bond with them, carrying a stick and showing fear ). Since human bonding with the wild killing instinct predators is 90% about respect, communication, attention, trust, love, affection, friendship and companionship to bond as a family member which over write the killer instinct gene in these predators, fully allowing the bonding between the human specie and the wild exotic killing instinct predator specie. But he royally failed to do so and that killer gene has not been over written on those tigers and that lion. The killer gene is still active. Therefore these animals posses a danger to him when being around them. Needless to say that this is a relationship based on feeding and cleaning after the wild exotic killing instinct predators.

    43. NotherNerd

      / and a wolf person

    44. NotherNerd

      aw thay are so cute but haw did you get the tiger s im a tiger person myself

    45. Van Bui

      The cats need more space

    46. ruth_loveSNSD 9IRLS'6ENERAT10N

      The problem now is what will happen to those big cats if something bad happen to him. Im worried about them. he said he's alone taking care of them. Just wondering

    47. Zari

      why are all of the takers old(no offense)?


      He should release Them they shouldn't be kept as pets and I have a feeling he secretly abuses them

    49. Marina Udoekpo

      Free animals

    50. Erika Alarcon

      Im not even joking though, I feel like he does not have a special relationship with these animals and that the animals will gladly take him anyday they want. He is not treating them as he should be, the sad part is that if the animals do, do something to him the animals are the ones who will get punished. I don’t like this man

    51. Mr Mellow

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

    52. 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

      1. xX Kh4lis Xx

        Why do you hate tigers

    53. Shaggy 207

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

    54. Bhavik Bhandola

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

    55. 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.

    57. ArtalekOfDoom

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

    58. I_dont_ _even_know

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

    59. Racket Tattoo

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

    60. Steven Taumoepeau

      Tames his 300kg Tiger with a wooden stick!

    61. Pupper Puppet

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

    62. 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

    63. Frazzy Blue

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

    64. Frazzy Blue

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

    65. CaptainManzana

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

    66. deep152deep

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

    67. Nick Reddy

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

    68. fateaglio

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

    69. fm7 fm7
