Kristen Kerr, 21-year-old, was raised among lions, cheetahs and other wild animals. She was born on an animal sanctuary and they have always been a huge part of her life.
Describing herself as a real-life Dr Dolittle, she even chose to be home-schooled at the age of 10 because she missed the animals too much she was at school. Now an adult, she works full-time at a sanctuary, looking after cheetahs, giraffes, meerkats and zebras.
"I have raised three cheetahs since cubs, and they are like my family – I know they would protect me as much as I protect them. They are totally harmless; I lie on the floor with them and kiss their face and sometimes even sleep in the enclosure with them.", Kerr said. Now, she looks after seven cheetahs, including one that is completely wild.
