Russian star Anfisa Chekhova, 40, was bitten underneath by the playful cub named Jack while posing with him in the Russian capital Moscow and she later shared the footage with her 1.5 million Instagram followers. The comical clip shows a sultry Chekhova lying on her side in a black dress whilst the restless two-month-old lion cub climbs her. When the lion slides faraway from the star’s body, a dog handler rushes to put the mischievous cat close to her body again.
As the photographer moves away, the lion nibbles the Russian presenter’s backside and at one time even sinks its fangs into her buttock leaving her to shriek in pain. Ms Chekhova accompanied her video post with the message:
The lion cub’s name is Jack. He is two months old. ‘During the photo shoot, I was bitten and licked but the main thing is that I got a lot of positive emotions.’
According to reports, Jack was brought from the Moscow zoo to take part in the photo shoot.
