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. This family took him in and loved him and he never hurt anyone. I adore this.
Binti Jua,the gorilla who saved a 3 yr old boy that climbed the wall around her zoo enclosure & fell 18 feet onto concrete below,rendering him unconscious with a broken hand & a vicious gash on the side of his face.Binti walked to the boy while helpless spectators screamed,certain the gorilla would harm the child.Binti picked up the child,cradling him as she did her own infant,gave him a few pats on the back, and carried him 59 ft to an access entrance,so that personnel could retrieve him.
