Here is the Kissing Lion video

Leap O' Faith sent this to me:

This Is AMAZING . . . LOVE IS FOREVER !!!

Several years ago this woman found a sick, malnourished lion cub in the jungle.
She took the cub home and fed him and brought him up until he was too big to keep anymore.
Then she made arrangements with a zoo in Colombia to take the lion.
Here's a video of what happened when she went to visit him in the zoo for the first time: http://www.telestereo.com/Archivos/video.html

That was too cool. I've heard of a bear hug but that was the coolest lion hug I've ever seen.

WoW !! The lion hug, is very, very cool indeed!

That's a nice prize Mt. Cat.....for the ladies!

Jahooni said...

this made me sad, why is that?

Doc said...

Vin - If Huey was dead then how was he in the Jimmy Kimmel Ben Affleck video?

Leighann said...

Aww I want a lion!

And if he's dead, how did he do a duet with Garth Brooks?

Lulita said...

He's dead but the clone lives on

Doc said...

I dunno - Ask Vince...

Leighann said...

I think he's in the same "club" as Dick Clark and Bob Barker, they're cryogenically frozen every night.

I used to think Kenny Rogers was in the club, but have you seen old boys face lately??

Christine said...

I don't know - hard to believe, actually. I think it's Huey in a costume!

Shane it was a joke. I used to ask you if he was dead a while ago.

I mean the video. That is the sweetest thing I've seen in so long!!! Jahooni, it made me sad, too. Almost brought sad tears to my eyes instead of happy ones. It looked like it was gonna rip her head off.

Actually the woman runs an animal sanctuary using her salary as a teacher and donations. She rescued the lion from a circus. She doesn't open the sanctuary to the public because she wants the animals to have peace: they come from a background of being displayed like the lion in the circus. This is a link to the news story that went with the video: http://www.local6.com/print/10726779/detail.html
