Christian the Lion

I watched this clip a few years ago and forgot about it until last night.
I have a big heart for wild animals.

And so the story goes, Christian the Lion was bought as a cub from Harrods department store by John Rendall and Anthony "Ace" Bourke(Australians) in the 70's. Im sure your thinking 'Harrods? Wild Animals?" but apparently they had an exotic animal section where you could even enquire about purchasing a camel with the reply "one hump or two?"
Christian lived in their apartment in London before being released into the African wilderness. John and Anthony went back after a year to see if Christian remembered them..

This is the result:
