Thank god he left Goldie at home...

A truly astonishing clip for you today. In 1982, Blue Peter sent presenter Simon Groom to visit the Shambala Preserve, a big cat sanctuary run by actress and star of Hitchcock's The Birds and Marnie, Tippi Hedren, in California. So Simon met Tippi, her partner and several fully-grown male lions, a tiger, a leopard and a 'tigon' - and somehow lived to tell the tale!

Simon Groom somehow avoids being eaten by various big cats
