Artist of Vasilevka going to live in a family of lions and take delivery of a lioness

40-year-old artist from Vasilevka going to get into the Guinness Book of Records. He plans to spend five weeks in a cage with lions. And yet - the world's first to take delivery of a lioness

Family of our compatriot Alexander Pylyshtnko already known to the whole of Ukraine - their home zoo rightly considered to be something amazing and miraculous. In the past profitable on ICTV has passed the final unique show, "Wonder People, where Alexander Pylyshenko though not won, but secured the support of thousands of viewers who sent in his favor paid sms ...

Quiet street Steppe - the most westerly in Vasilievka. Normal street Conventional Ukrainian village, that's just ENTERING on it ... just heard the roar of a lion!

We drive to the high forged gate hospitably open wide. Meet us - two large dogs, friendly flapping their tails and lick the hands norovyaschie guests. Greets us with a guy with a beard. Judging by age - son of Alexander Pylyshenko. Meet. Son of Alexander Alexandrovich is my namesake.

Denis Pylyshenko says that his father could not have encountered-tit - preparing food for pets. A tall man in high boots and laced ryzheyu bearded artist - and there's Alexander. He leaves the house with a large metal basket. In a typically gather leaves ... It - half calf - black head, legs, innards ... Everything is covered with black hair - a really wild improvisation. Hello to the sleeve - in the hands of the home owner ichor and raw meat.

Thought that the idea for journalists so soon and will begin - the owner of a mini-zoo in a cage to come roaring lions, as shown in the unique show, "Wonder People", where our hero with his snarling "family members" fought for the prize
100,000 hryvnia. But, as explained by the landlord, "First, the meat - and then kisses." What he had in mind, we realized only later.

"We both live in!"

At the threshold of the landlord apologized to us for the situation at home, explaining "that they are living." In the family's house Pylyshenko spacious, but there is absolutely no reverence for things like in many homes. Next to a burning fireplace, rustic wood crackling under the dancing flames, there are comfortable leather chair and sofa. On the table a delicious coffee. Includes not Razuvious. Dogs fall at his feet, and one year old English Mastiff Ike begins to snore like a hefty guy, drooling on the carpet. Mastino Napolitano Busya at my feet, clamoring for attention, like a girl rolling her eyes in the folds of funny faces. Nobody washes her legs before she decides to walk on the ground floor. In this environment, our conversation runs slowly. Alexander Pylyshenko - a very interesting conversationalist.

- Forty years I had in days. I was born two miles from Vasilevka in the village May Day - as in the spirit outlines his career, Alexander Alexandrovich - Deputy Chairman of the family farm. Parents - cows, pigs, chickens, nutria and other such livestock. Strongly against such a lifestyle - I think that'll never do anything like that and go away somewhere far away.

Alexander Pylyshenko entered the Art Institute, where he met future wife - Helen. After graduation, the family of young artists has returned from Krivoy Rog in the native village of Alexander.
- And it turned out that I live a few kilometers from the parental home and doing much the same, only instead of cows - lions, instead of pigs - a bear - smiling companion. - Who was born and raised on the ground, not perelezet the balcony. I can not imagine myself in the apartment.

Calculator for the artist

In native Vasilevka Alexander Pylyshenko six years in a row managed art school. But as he spoke, the man he is creative, but because - irresponsible. At a certain point I realized that leadership position is not for him.
- Money from my directorship at the School of Art was never enough. Have a display issue, then paint the trays. So I decided to go to self - kuyu. I do everything that relates to art-metal. He worked for the Yalta zoo, and for the field of fairy tales, and other similar institutions. But, mostly, are worth the banal - gates, fences, grills ... In response to the crisis, and then orders was at times less.

On the day of four-legged family members Pylyshenko consume about thirty pounds of meat! So naturally, the "home zoo" itself does not pay.

- The price of a lion cub? I bought a zoo in Ukraine. I sell them from one and a half thousand dollars. This is a very reasonable price. For example, when I was eight and a half years ago, fired up the purchase of a lioness, then the best option found - is $ 3500 plus shipping from Hungary. Fortunately, I stopped to visit the zoo's director of Yalta, and Oleg offered me a kitten and a half thousand. Of course, I was overjoyed! You saw it - it's our Kate, in the aviary.

Children apartments

Family home Pylyshenko is a kind of transshipment base for wild exotic animals. Among them, many fell prey from the hands of the Crimean photographers who sometimes inhumane act with our smaller brethren. - Have you ever climbed the Ai-Petri? Seen there are many local photographers with cubs, rysya-mi, bears, falcons? So I'll tell you what to do with these animals. For a start they need to trim the claws, preferably including a phalanx of fingers - not to re-industry. Then there was a good idea to knock out the teeth, so as not snapped with fright. And that would earn more money, have them hrenovasto feed - then they grow up humpback and rickety.

The family Pylyshenko such harried and hungry young animals simply bloom. For example, one lynx, living in an aviary Alexander Alexandrovich - also a "private child".
One of these wild lynx lived in crowded and animals, a 2-room apartment

- There's history in general is not for the faint of heart. Imagine a two-room "Khrushchev". In it - dad, mom, three kids between the ages of two and a half to sixteen years old, rabbits, fish, parrots, cat, turtle, squirrel, wolf and lynx. Why? Well, family is something photographers! Give us a lynx, as grown up a bit and become a threat to the inhabitants of the apartment menagerie.

Cri de coeur

All who have pets in the house, know what vitamins, vaccinations, or a sudden cold elemental pet. Output two: either call a specialist, or take an animal in veterinaries. But what to do with pribolevshim lion in Vasilievka?
- In my example, tell - says about sore Alexander. - Last winter due to abnormal temperature fluctuations (three in the morning, night, -10), Katja frostbitten paws. On the front left three fingers very badly affected - so that without an operation is necessary. We appealed to Zaporizhzhya clinic "Friend" - where we drove to her small inoculation. We even took pictures and posted the picture in the corridors solutions for advertising - they say, that's what our customers! Month of life pick up the phone conversations with many different vets, such as: "The lioness? Grown-up? Really! Surgery? No, it is better to lull you! "

Rescued by a grandfather, a professor - Stepanov. After listening to my agitated speech, he joked: "Well, if not won mene duzhe tear, then zroblyu ..." Katya, I put to sleep and immobilized. Professor and students had the surgery, anesthesia, she moved away from the normal. This is the most difficult in such cases - to calculate the dose of anesthesia.

In Vasilevka former agricultural college, which produces vets, changed their name to "academy". Here are, in fact, it seems, from thence, veterinarians continue to prepare themselves for only the castration of rabbits so artificial insemination of cows.
- Even the evil takes! Such a framework at hand - come, take, I do not know feces for analysis! Count how many worms there ... In the eyes of the lion live to see, in the end! What we absolutely do not need anything! Does any one future veterinarian has no plans to work in a zoo or circus? To us coaches kids bring from Tokmak, Energodar, canopy and other cities. A Vasilyevsky children for fun in the summer to come - into a lion with a slingshot or pneumatics to shoot, and run.
- A dog? - I am surprised.
- Yes, some of them guards? - Smiling companion, staring at eloquently snoring Mastiff.

Give us a record!

This summer, Alexander Pylyshenko just crazy to risk his plan - to live in a cage with his lions five weeks!
- Apart from them, just build a shower and toilet. Going to sleep on wooden flooring, without featherbeds and pillows. In June-July, I want to set this record and take delivery of a lioness. That is why the exact date of the beginning of the experiment has not yet decided. On the territory of farmstead Pylyshenko already built a separate house for volunteers and representatives from various organizations enjoying sweet fix a record of the artist. Journalists NG Alexander also invited.
- For five weeks, in addition to delivery, will be devoted to creative work - writing from life right in the cage.
Beast and Man. True, they look like?

The current record for cohabitation with the lions belong to 42-year-old resident of Florida (USA) Jim Dzhablonu. Jim, thanks to its non-standard practices, received money for the
home accommodation and world-famous.

Vasilevets also plans to spend in the cage for a week and more Americans, but still take generations for Katie!
- I already took her kids to help her. For the first time this has happened by accident. Entered the cage, looked to her - and they are already here! And we are no signs of pregnancy she had not seen it ... after lambing two days to myself and the children of the lion were not allowed, and I'm allowed to be near. Generally, if the tigers - one hundred percent cats, the lions - is on the same one hundred percent of dogs - loyal and smart.

Bear, where's your smile?

The most cunning and dangerous predator of domestic Pylyshenko - is a seemingly good-natured Bear, Brown Bear. When we left the house, he brought up, ate condensed milk.
- I bear no facial muscles, - said Alexander Aleksandrov, Kantorovich. - Therefore, the expression on his muzzle does not change. With one and the same expression he can cuddle, kiss, kill and tear on the flap. With him we are here Relations: when I go into the cage to clean, something podladnat, he goes to the end of the enclosure, and patiently waits. Through the lattice, we communicate with him very well - eating with hands.

A couple of lynx, according to the artist, usually climb a tree in the aviary or sit in a stone hut. Man they do not allow close-remain wild, even in such conditions. And very bad breed in captivity.
Imperceptibly came a moment in which I have just incredibly fast heart beat - Pylyshenko went to the lions in a cage. Samson and Kate immediately began rubbing the muzzle on the foot host fairly humming. Neither give nor take - a cat.
- Samson we have a handsome man. This - Barbary lion. You see, in addition to a lush mane of his thick vegetation on the abdomen, until the groin. At home, in North Africa, they do not remain in the wild. Rarity.
Pylyshenko without fear pull "a great rarity" by aviary by the tail. Lion rests and seems baldeet from this game. Katya goes after him, flirting. Aleksandr Aleksandrovich shoves her hands into the mouth, as if about to break. Then they kiss.
Behind the house, away from adult predators on the aviary lonely wandering cub.

- He is one of the last litter Katya - explains the owner. - Grew up with our dogs, but has now become for them a dangerous boyfriend - during a game could hurt the claws and fangs are already quite long. Because of separation from canine company, he feels sad and refuses to eat. Spend days walking along the grating and rubbing the muzzle - already torn into the blood itself. The next week it is taken to the Lugansk zoo.
They say cats do not like when they drag the tail ...

Like all fairy tales, the limit of hospitality and cordiality ended. We zasobiralsya in Melitopol, full of positive emotions from communication with hitherto unprecedented nature.
At the end of the conversation Alexander expressed his attitude to domestic zoos:

- It is very wrong. We strive to another. Vasilevsky city council gave us hectare of forest for the construction of the zoo. We have already started construction, but shedstv to complete yet. I believe that these animals are in private hands - all the same property of the state. I hope we will succeed, there are patrons and sponsors who understand us and help.

... Following the drafting car for a long time sounded rather "rumble" Samson.
