A bit of nail-biter footage posted to Facebook by the Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation shows a black panther, Kal-El, stalking and pouncing on foundation owner Eduardo Serio.

In the end, the pounce appears to be affectionate — the two clearly have a good rapport. But is hanging out so close to a deadly wild animal a good idea in the first place?

According to animal rights groups, the answer is a resounding no. In fact, Big Cat Rescue has recorded eight injurious incidents involving captive big cats so far this year — often from privately owned animals who "turn" on their doting caretakers.

Black Jaguar White Tiger in particular has come under fire for the lack of physical boundaries between Serio and the animals. While it's clear Serio wants the best for the cats (he even refers to as his "babies"), his constant physical contact with them could pose a serious risk to him, his staff and visitors.
