This is the man who bought this lion as a cub in the 60’s and then when it got too big he let it into the wild. 10 years later it was the alpha male in a nature reserve in Africa and it was really violent. The guy went to see it and it walked up to him and gave him a hug.

the hug.

Its so little!

”This is my favorite photo in the world - me and Linus, born to a dairy cow and ordered to be killed when the farmer saw he was a male (and thus useless in the dairy industry). A compassionate individual intervened, and he was brought to a sanctuary. I met him when he was a few days old and 60 pounds, and he would always try to sit on my lap. Today, 7 years young and 1500 pounds, he still tries to sit on my lap.” ~Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

So sweet

So Cute Bear Cub cute animals sweet nature baby wild bear climb cub

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 adore this.

A mother's love: Four-year-old Asha and her young cub K'wasi give each other a cuddle in Zoo Miami before Asha suddenly died. Wouldn't it be a good thing if we could transport some of our African Lions to Asia to help with their Big Cat situation? After all, they are cousins.
