“This is demonic": Photos of male lions having sex upset Kenyan TV/film censor
A photograph of two male lions having sex in Kenya's world-famous Maasai Mara game reserve is entertaining Twitter but troubling the head of Kenya's film board.
Ezekiel Mutua, chief executive of the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB), told Nairobi News that the lions must have learnt the behaviour from humans:
“These animals need counselling, because probably they have been influenced by gays who have gone to the national parks and behaved badly.”
'They must have copied it from somewhere or it is demonic. Because these animals do not watch movies.'
He also demanded confirmation of the genders of the lions, saying 'we should not jump to conclusions that the lions were both male'.
According to BBC, plenty of animals engage in same-sex mating. Japanese macaques, for example, are believed to do so simply for pleasure, according to a 2006 study.
