The story of Christian the lion is actually a very well documented case Didi :D The old guy is the late, famous George Adamson, who the two young guys saw a doco on and realised that if Christian went to his sanctuary, he might have a chance to be "normal". And he did, when they went back to see Christian, he was head of his own pride, with females and cubs. George told them Christian wouldn't have anything to do with him, now he was a proper wild lion, but as you can see, Christian was very loving to his two dads.

They did an interview with one of the "dads" and he was really stoked that 30 years later, Christian the lion was warming hearts again.

Yes, I was a bit sceptical about it at first DiDi - that's why I watched and posted the number of the video of the recent interview with the two guys who raised Christian. The interview video is a few minutes long but well worth watching.
