In this photo taken Monday Oct. 11, 2010, Kevin Richardson, a.k.a. the Lion Whisperer piggybacks on the back of a lion in their enclosure at the Kingdom of the White Lion park in Broederstroom, near Johannesburg South Africa. A new film opening in the United States on Friday about a rare white lion who escapes becoming a trophy on a wall is a rare happy ending in a country where more than 1,000 lions are killed legally each year.Kevin Richardson, the man behind the movie, calls himself an "ambassador of lions" and hopes the film will act as one too at a time when foreign tourists are willing to pay up to $40,000 to shoot a big cat.(AP Photo/Denis Farrell)
