Located just outside Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lujan Zoo provides zoogoers the opportunity to bottle feed a bear, cuddle a tiger, or rub noses with a lion, and, if these pictures are accurate, walk away un-mauled. While many visitors assert the animals are clearly drugged, the zoo insists the tameness is entirely natural, a product of raising each cub from birth and teaching them to be calm, permissive, and uninterested in eating humans.

It’s been a hard day in front of the camera . . . and this young bear has clearly had enough of posing.
The bear, weary after a day of being photographed fishing and eating, simply closed his eyes and covered his face.
He was pictured in remote Kamchatka, in Russia’s far east, by wildlife photographer Yury Sorokin, who got within a few feet of the animal.
The 33-year-old, from Moscow, was just a couple of metres away when the camera shy bear decided he’d had enough and closed his eyes before covering his face with his paw.
Mr Sorokin said: 'The bear was fishing for red salmon in the lake and after eating a substantial dinner decided to have a rest in the sun.
'I think it was at that point that he decided enough was enough.
'He’d hardly paid any attention to me all day but once he’d exhausted himself and filled his belly I guess he just wanted to relax on his own without me taking pictures.
