    Because Bruce Campbell is almost this big. - from Life magazine - In 1983 Tippi Hendren established the Shambala Preserve in California’s Mojave Desert, a wildlife sanctuary for lions and tigers. This lions name is Togar. He was brought to the sanctuary but had never been around any other lions. He had to live with humans or be put down. His teeth were pulled before he was brought to the sanctuary. This family took him in and loved him and he never hurt anyone.

I want a baby lion in the mail. It is almost like second hand lions all over again.

In the 1970′s, actress and model Tippi Hedren (mother of actress Melanie Griffith) created the Shambala Preserve after producing the film Roar. The preserve rescued exotic big cats living in captivity that had been abused or were in need of help, one of which the family created a close bond with. Neil the lion lived with the family in their home, and played an active role in the day to day activities of the preserve.

Lion. (KO) You do not want to be on his guest list for dinner. It's crazy to be so close, even through a telephoto lens!

This little fella is the cutest! I want him and I will hug him and squeeze him and call him George!

I just cried my eyes out. Literally. I was hanging out playing video games and I had to leave the room. THIS is why I love animals so much, and have a tattoo on my foot that says "Always faithful, Always loved" I also cried. Beautiful, I will greet beasts in Heaven this way!
