WOW, that is awesome...and a bit scary.
What if it had gone differently, or if in the hugging stage someone accidentally got hurt?
But those who say animals don't remember are definitely wrong!

Touching, for sure, but I doubt I'd be quite so brave.  Thanks for sharing it.

From the looks on their faces, I have to assume the lion was also making welcoming sounds...because he certainly wasn't charging them, nor was he sneaking up on them as if they were strangers...

and yes, Susan...hanky alert for sure!

Thanks Sunshine!  Animals know so much more than we generally give them credit for. This was so heart-warming!

Very cool video, Karilea... glad I found this tonight...

Here's a little more information about Christian
and his humans, in case anyone is interested... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_the_lion

of power the world will know peace."

Vicki - thanks for taking up my weekend exploration - I was going to look into the history a bit more, but am so pleased you did the research for me, and to share it here.
