Sirga treats the two men just like she would other lions and with their help she can now hunt for prey on her own

He said: ‘A pride had three cubs and two were killed before Sirga was abandoned without food. It happened on our land and we could not standby and watch her die.

Mr Legarth, 30, said his bond with Sirga was just like as if she was part of his pride

The pair’s work has been documented by photographer Nicolai Frederik Bonnin Rossen who himself got up-close-and-personal with the magnificent predators

‘Sirga doesn’t mind people, but she doesn’t pay them any attention. Wild lions are scared of people, the problem comes if you release a lion that is used to people in the wild, that can cause problems.

Mr Legarth said: ‘The first time you walk up to a lion all your body is telling you this is not something you should be doing’

The Modisa Wildlife Project aims at removing lions from areas where they face certain death after coming into conflict with farmers

Mr Legarth added: ‘If you release wild lions somewhere else, they will come straight back to where they were before because there is food there.
