TT HAS BEEN DONE, BUT EVEN SMALL DOMESTIC PETS CAN INJURE YOU! THERE'S ALWAYS A DANGER. ITS UP TO YOU.
It is legal in some states/countries, but they are wild animals, and even those born in captivity are still unpredictable and will still behave according to its instincts. Personally, I'd just as soon keep a pet whose natural prey is much smaller than myself, because if you inadvertently trigger a lion's hunting instinct then there's nothing that can get there fast enough to help you. Not to mention you'd have to have a LOT of space and a pretty specific habitat set up for it, and proper feeding could get extremely pricey if you don't keep your own goat herd.
I wouldn't recommend it since there's a high chance that you can get injured. If you're sure you want one, make sure you have enough room for the lion to live in - at the very least an acre of enclosed land. Anything smaller would be kind of cruel. Good luck.
You bet, just have him completely declawed and every tooth in its mouth pulled and you shuld get nothing worse that a lot of brusing and possbily be gummed to death.
Well you or some human and animals around you can end up being a meal for that kind of pet. That is not a joke.
Try a dog or cat, they make better pets
