Into The Pride premiered on ANI on August 13, 2009. Large predator expert Dave Salmoni embarks on the journey of a lifetime. For six months, Dave will live among a pride of lions alone in the expansive African wilderness. Along the way, his experience and knowledge as a zoologist and large cat expert will be put to the test as Dave tries to help a pride of "problem lions" learn to trust human beings, so the two species can harmoniously share the land that they depend on for survival. This series is both an intense personal mission for Dave and a detailed look at a beautiful and complex creature, the African lion.
