I have seen this bunnybon and it truly is heart warming and wonderful. I have just seen a television interview with the two men features in the clip - they are a lot older now but so happy about the fact that Christian still loved and cared about them and that he was successfully reintroduced to the wild after 5 generations of being domesticated! There is a documentary on here tonight about the whole thing and I just hope I get the chance to see it! xxx

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH ~ SELF EVIDENT Thanks a bunch, bunnybon7; for your candor sharing with us here about the moment of truth, where truth is self-evident, had happened between Christian, John Redall & Ace Berg. Back up with the great song really impulsed the reunion session. THE LOVE TEARS BREAKING VIDEO ~ texts re-write Video Total Running Time: 2.08 minutes The Story Board : In 1969, John Redall & Ace Berg saw a lion cub for sale in Harrods. Cramped & lonely in a small cage and they decided to bring him home. 00:41 A local vicar allowed them to exercise the cub, now named Christian, in the church grounds but he very quickly became too big for their flat. 00:52 The only thing they could do was to try and reintroduce him to Africa, which they managed to do. A year later they wanted to visit him but were told 01:03 that he was now the head of his own pride and as such was completely wild and would not remember them. Undaunted, they went anyway. 01:18 After many hours of looking for the pride, this is what happened when they finally found the wild lion.... GREAT MOMENT OF REUNION and the running background song perfectly addressed the shared loving moment enjoyed by Christian, John Redall & Ace Berg.....tears breaking moment!!!

Nice shot. Reallly heartwarming! I think that is why allmighty create human as the best creature in the world. Human can rule all over the animal world. This one is a viable provence of that. Yeah as far as I know no referral link can't be so. Have a nice day. Happy mylotting.

Hello bunnybob. I thank you so much for the video link about the lion and its caretakers. I am so touched by the short video. What a relationship between the lion and us humans! So long as they are well take care of, they won't forget us even if they are back to the wild life after some time. I love to watch the hearty hugging. I also wish the lion and the caretakers to see more of each other for the nice and harmonious relationship. Good day, friend.
