Vicky Brooker is known for her work with wild animals in Racing Stripes (2005), Wild at Heart (2006) and Scout's Safari (2002). 

Brooker talked with SBS Radio Dutch about the dangers of being close to lions, after the death of a young American woman this week.

The victim was taking photos of a group of lions and couldn't see another one was approaching her. She was apparently attacked through the window of the vehicle.

Earlier this year, the Australian man was also attacked through the window of a car in Johannesburg.
