Affectionate Lion Is Made of Happy

Friday, January 9th, 2009

This video has been floating around for more than a year, so it might be old news to you, but it was new to me. The intro snippet says:

A woman in Columbia found a lion cub, who was wounded and hungry. She took him home and raised him until he was too big. She then gave him to the local zoo, where she visits him every day. 

This is one of those cases where I have complex mixed feelings about wild animals being domesticated, but the lion was wounded when she took him in, so I think it is much better this way. Since he is living in a zoo and not released into the wild, I can just look at the incredible display of affection and just say, “Awwwwwww!”
