Oh wow, check out this video, it's so cool!

Several years ago this woman found a sick,
malnourished lion cub in the jungle.

She took the cub home and fed him and brought
him up until he was too big to keep anymore.
Then she made arrangements with a zoo in
Colombia to take the lion.

Here's a video of what happened when she went
to visit him in the zoo for the first time:

I can't view this video here at work, but I think I saw it a couple of weeks ago. A co-worker showed it to me. The lion hugs the lady and like nuzzles her and actually looks so happy to see her, right?

It's sooooo cute!

I was totally expecting a rickroll there.

Then I was expecting him to eat her face.

This one always gets me. There's no sound and you can tell how old it is based on the hair - short story is these two guys raised her from a cub but she got too big so they released her into the wild. A year later they went back to visit.

I'd probably be dead by now if Bosco loved me that much. The other thing I like about it is that the other cats in the wild pride completely accept the humans shortly after ward. The other friendly one you can see is completely wild.

I have seen that vid before, but without the other wild cat. It seems to prove that animals have long term memory and love, and can somehow communicate "hey these guys are ok" to other animals.

Hahaha- I know how the reporter feels; I raised Yoda from a pup, have taken care of him, fed him, medicated him, bathed him, loved him, walked him, and spent a gazillion dollars on him. He has hand knitted blankets in his doggie kennel. He won't give me the time of day.
