***UPDATE!*** (It's been due for one for a while now!)

This footage is from the documentary Christian The Lion, showing the progress of Christian's rehabilitation from London into to the wild by George Adamson; and of the pride that Mr.Adamson had formed around him.
And by all means, the story is not over, as long as there are people around to tell it!
To find out more, visit The Born Free Foundation's website: and
If you would like to buy the documentary (or even just donate- all the proceeds go towards animal preservation), you can get it here:
The Born Free Foundation is an international wildlife charity working throughout the world to stop individual wild animal suffering and protect threatened species in the wild.
I first heard of this, and got this footage from:
Yes, I am the first person to post this on YouTube.
And yes, Ace Bourke and John Rendall are awesome.
Hats off to George Adamson, may he rest in peace.

Here's a perfect example of what happens when you show an animal love. ^_^ Christian was brought up by two humans and here he is greeting one of them. It warms my heart every time I see this, because the lion is like "Hey, I know you! *GLOMP!*" :D And who says cats aren't loyal? Christian's story is told in both a documentary and a book.
THIS IS NOT MINE! This footage from the documentary was kleptoed from a FANTASTIC website about Kimba the White Lion. ^_^ So send all Kudos where it belongs!
