No, they don’t get eaten

July 5, 2008

A short video about a lion cub from London that was released back into the African wilderness (they sell Lions at Harrods?).  I spent a bit of time verifying the story and as far as I can tell, it’s true.  The guy that shows up at the end of the video (at 1:45) is George Adamson.  He worked with the lion to introduce it into the wild.  You may remember him from the book/movie, Born Free, where he and his wife Joy, did something similar with their lion, Elsa.

It’s corny, but it’s really cute.  And yes, I was sure they were going to get eaten at the end.
