Christian The Lion’s Emotional Reunion With Caretakers

(ANIMAL CONNECTION/VIDEO) In 1969, two men saw a lion cub cramped in a caged for sale at Harrods. They brought the cub home, exercising the lion cub they named Christian at the local church.

A year later they wanted to visit Christian, but were advised the lion was now wild and wouldn't remember them. But that statement underestimated the enduring power of friendship. Watch the touching reunion of Christian the lion with his former caretakers, John Rendall and Ace Berg. Warning – this video may cause tears of joy. — Global Animal
