Christian the Lion

In 1969, two friends, John Rendall and Ace Berg, purchased a lion cub. He had been born in a zoo. The friends raised Christian in their London home. All three hung out in a friend’s furniture shop on the weekends. Rendall and Berg realized they couldn’t keep him much longer. Christian soon ended up in Africa. There he was released into the wild. In 1974, Rendall and Berg decided to visit Christian one last time. They were told it was doubtful that Christian could be found. On the day they landed, Christian appeared outside. Somehow, he knew. He waited outside. This video is their reunion with Christian.
