Karl Towns played with baby lions and tigers today


While back in Kentucky for a much-needed break after his rookie season, Karl-Anthony Towns made a trip up to Wildlife In Need in Southern Indiana to play with the baby lions and tigers.

Towns was a special guest at the animal sanctuary, and the photos from his visit will give our female readers (and some of the males) all of the feels.

    I’ve done that before, lots of fun. The tiger cubs I got to play with were much bigger, about the size medium sized dog. Unforgettable experience!

    Ukbradstith, did they try to lop your head, clean off? They can lop a head off cleaner than a Kaiser blade….I’ve seen it before. I gotta get me some biscuits & mustard before the next loping.

      Is that a slingblade reference?

    It amazes me how cute and adorable and playful all kinds of wild animals are when they’re young. But then they grow up and become Trump supporters. Why can’t they stay little?
