I almost didn't watch the whole video...... it was so heart wrenching.

I watched it all and had tears in my eyes.


As I watched it, a recurring thought I have is being back in school. After school is out, my horse would show up and I would ride him bareback, back to home. But before we would start, a skunk would come and sit in front of me. You might think I was a crazy kid, but I had an affinity toward skunks. They never sprayed me.

THANKS A LOT FOR SHOWING THIS VIDEO!

That was such a beautiful touching memory, BigJohn... Thanks for sharing! Found this video years back and glad to see it posted here... Had the exact same effect on me... absolutely no words to describe the beauty of love and friendship between humans and animals...

The Story of Christian the lion is heartwarming. Christian the lion was a cub born in captivity and purchased by Australian John Rendall and Anthony "Ace" Bourke from Harrods department store in London in 1969.

Just beautiful...
I had some magical moments with "my" lions and tigers .
This video reminded my of "Rouque" ... 18 month old Siberian tiger cub !... Majestic.
He would run up to his keepers like a puppy ... ( Rescue centre in South of England that I was involved in... Some of my most precious memories)

You say that you didn't find any previous threads about Christian the lion - but this is probably because older threads have been deleted to save space on the server. A good few years ago, I remember quite a few discussions about this famous and heartwarming story. The Noble Knight (Knight of Albion, sadly no longer with us) posted several times about it, as did I.

Thank you for renewing interest in the story and the video!

I've returned here fairly recently but remember the gentle, positive Knight of Albion. When you say 'no longer with us' hopefully you meant he just left here (in 2016) and not anything more finite.

A good question, but I cannot answer you directly (as you deserve). I knew the Noble Knight on quite a few forums, not just this one, and he became a friend (albeit only via the net). He stopped posting on all forums suddenly in November 2016. If you wish a more direct answer, you are welcome to contact me via PM or via my website.
