These 2 guys reared this lion from a baby in England but the authorities would not allow them to keep it once it reached maturity so they were forced to give it up. They took it back to Africa and placed it in a wildlife sanctuary. A year later they went to see it and were told it would not remember them. They were Wrong.....

Of course it ate them after the video ended. They didn't want to sadden Valerie though

Man, those guys were pretty brave. I thought it was going to attack the way it sped up as it neared them. Maybe they approached it after it already ate.

My cat Diesel does that to me every day. The paws on my shoulders and his face rubbing all over mine. I can just imagine how much they loved that lion, and how much he loved them. :up:
