Anyone ever seen this?

Excuse the titles at the end and the obvious attempt this video made at being cheesy. :p

Still made me cry my eyes out, and I'm not one to cry. There's something about the bond between man and animal that brings me to tears, I can't even watch it without bawling. :vlol:

Yeah, ages ago.

There was a documentary on it a few months ago... it was really good.

LOL, we talked about it in Open Chat not too long ago! :D

It's an amazing story and video. I nearly melted when I saw how the lion still recognized them. :hug:
I love big cats.

I watched it awhile back and closed it out the minute it finished. I don't like sad or touching things involving animals, :p. I hate that upset feeling.

Aw. A bit harsh though. But if it's not rough it isn't fun :p :hug:

Its a classic alright :)

I try to ignore the feeling I get in the back of my mind that that tiger is just a very inefficient killer, and hugs are the only means of attack it knows. Because that would certainly put a dampener on things.

Don't say that! :smk:

I'm sorry, I couldn't ignore it. :P

I didn't know Riv posted it. Today was the first time I've ever seen it, one of my coworkers was telling me about it. Maybe she visits TRF too. :p

If it were true, then wouldn't he be dead after a whole year on his own?

Put your mind at ease. Its surely not true!

Ignore tags obviously just draw more attention to a statment :vlol:

To me they apparently do! :p

Those two were very brave I have to say. It's still a lion, you can never predict how it will react.

I have seen this documentary before and it's really sweet/cute the way the Lion recognizes the people who raised him as a cub. :)

The media really needs to show things like this. I mean nowadays it's all about Michael Jackson and being skinny. But this made me cry like a baby and I thought it was so cute *starts tearing up* :'] so cute

It's easier to watch on mute. I think it's so sweet when animals know what hugs are:)

I've seen it, but it's a great video. There's an hour long (?) TV documentary that was made about it, and they actually interviewed the girl who made it famous on Youtube. I can't remember how she got it.

I love animal stories. Have your heard about Hachiko (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hachik%C5%8D)?

You're right. I had to mute it because I was about to start boo hooing and I didn't want to ruin my makeup and make it blatantly obvious that I was crying. :p

I LOVE ANIMALS! Unfortunatily Animals are more trusted than Human beings.

I wish I could meet that lion :) So adorable.

Nice vid :hug:, reminded me a bit of this programme called "Dangerous Companions". This clip is amazing when the lioness trust the guy with her cubs.
