Reunited – Lion and Man Hug!August 5, 2008
Two Australians residing in London, John Rendall and Ace Bourke bought a cub way back in 1969. Very soon the cub grew into a lion and soon was too huge to handle. So, they released Christian, the lion into the wilds in Kenya. Soon after, Rendall and Bourke went back to Kenya to search for their beloved Christian. Here’s where the magic happened: Christian ran out and hugged both of the guys like humans do! He even muzzled each of them in turn – he was clearly ecstatic to see them again. Amazing.
This video is so touching. It just proves that love is all around us. ♥
