After giving a tour of Kowiachobee Animal Preserve in Golden Gate Estates, volunteer Michelle Augustyn relaxes on the belly of a five-month-old African lion, Shaumbay, inside the owner's home. John Slaby and his wife Grace, the directors of the preserve, are in a battle with Collier County code enforcement over the zoning of the preserve's property and whether or not they are allowed to continue to give tours to the public.
