    what's up with that Christian lion ?

    Why didn't he eat those people and why did it take so long for it to make the rounds on Youtube?

    I would be soiling myself if that big lug came jogging after me like that...I wouldn't trust him.

    You know 2-1B, they make products for the whole soiling yourself thing.

    Meh, I guess if they know the Lion, they'd know if it was coming to eat them? Rather touching (If insane) moment. It didn't eat them, because it probably saw them as it's parents and part of the pride, would be my guess.

    I got a different question.

    Wonder if he has fleas?

    WOW, that's pretty cool.

    I have to agree though, Sigfried and Roy aside, I still wouldn't trust a lion to be my "buddy".

    That's cool. I just don't know if I would want to be the one that had to change his litterbox.

    I don't buy it. The "reunion" is filmed from multiple angles. This would require one or more cameramen (or at least multiple cameras). I don't see evidence of other cameras (as old as this footage is, they weren't compact enough to hide), and I have a hard time buying that there was a cameraman insane enough to tag along for this loony moment.

    Not to mention he looks way too young to be head of a tribe... a position usually acquired via brute force, which he would've had very little experience with. In fact, he wouldn't have much experience hunting at all, so he'd probably be dead of starvation within a few weeks if we were really raised by non-professional people.

    Inspirational if you buy it, but I'm calling BS.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I am so disappointed.
    I thought this would be a thread about a lion that found Christ and converted to Christianity...

    I was hoping this thread was about Kirk Cameron. :ROWWWWWRRRRR:
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    I pretty much agree with you Chux. But I have two things to add. First lions don't hunt. That's to say they can't or won't if need be, but in general lions don't hunt. Lionesses are the ones who hunt in a pride. A young lion could get into a pride and as long as him knows his place he's set.

    That leads to my second thought. Unlike other cats (big or small) lions are pack animals. They form prides and have alphas. So there maybe pack mentality going on here. Still it looks staged to me.

    Well, as the link I posted pointed out:

    The 2 females in his pride were also re-introduced into the wild. This accounts for much of the issues in question.

    Here is a link to a much longer video:

    http://www.bornfree.org.uk/campaigns...tian-the-lion/

    The females also accepted the visitors without incident. The 2 men who raised Christian (Ace and John) visited a few times and lost touch after a couple of years.

    There is an 87 minute documentary on the entire thing here:

    I suppose the whole thing could have been staged, but it's kind of difficult to stage an 87 minute documentary filmed over 30 years ago, anything is possible.
    May the force be with you.
