Reflecting Paragraph

Even though there are great rewards to lion taming, the risks pull more of our focus and our attention. It pulls more of our focus and attention because a big cat could trick you into trusting it so when you got close enough to them, they hurt you. This citation from a passage says, "A trainer's life depends on how well he knows his animals" (Lion Tamers). So if you don't know how to work with your animals and they hurt you, either go to a hospital or die. We would not try to risk our lives attempting that sport even though we would get a one of a kind experience with a lion ,and we would gain more confidence and self-awareness.
