Christian the lion

“Christian was a lion purchased in 1969 by two Australians living in London… They had discovered him for sale in Harrods' exotic pets department and, concerned for his conditions and fate, decided to buy him."

The rest of the story re the return of the lion to the wilds of Kenya is told at the Wiki link and in the external links listed there. The video above shows the reunion in Africa of the lion and his old "mates."

(Thanks, Susan for finding and forwarding the link)
