As soon as they see any unfamiliar lion or any other animal for that matter, enter the bounds of their virtually fenced territory, they roar and pounce on the intruder before shredding them into many pieces. With that said, one can only imagine their reaction to seeing their newborn cubs being picked up by unknown hands. You would assume that as a rule of thumb, it would be best not to go near the cubs of a fierce lioness, right?
