Badger,that's incredible
They definetly did what was best for the Lion,but seeing the reunion was amazing.
The young men look kind of hippieish,so it must have happened a few years back..beeing an old hippie myself(according to my son)I notice those things

I've seen this before too. It always brings a tear to my eye when I see it. Animals are amazing.

I was searching some of the other videos, and I saw this one.

Maks has a raspy meow just like this little lion cub.

There are only two rules at my house: House rule #1. Cats rule. House rule #2. See rule #1.

I saw this on the Ellen show - it was wonderful. I bet you though that someone behind the scenes had the tranquilizer darts ready just in case. I agree it was taken a few years ago by the "styles" of the men.

oh that is really sweet - loved it.

I thought this might have been a joke on that incredibly stupid commercial where they find some untrainable lionman who one week later is driving a car wearing a suit.

This was a million times better than that - NO, make it a BILLION.
