"

Being raised by humans will not kill off their instincts.. They are not just like our cats.. House cats have no desire to go jump a gazelle and eat it.

This scene is actually from a movie called "Born Free" lol. It`s a wonderful movie and a wonderful scene, but it is still a movie BASED on a true story. That would probably explain also why there is no sound because I remember in this scene the song "Born Free" starts playing. Search "born free movie" on youtube and you can watch the original scene. A great story nonetheless.

My dog does the same thing when I get home from work and I am only gone nine hours.
So by my calculations they have only been separated for five hours.

I`m disappointed in most of you mopes. Usually someone on here knows better. Sad when it turns out to be me.

Just because the title stated that it was a reunion doesn`t make it so.

It`s from the KA`INGO GAME RESERVE, South Africa preserve from 1983 and all the lions there are friendly for the most part. It was not a reunion. Just play time.Texas Game Preserve

That was sweet. The only way it would have been sweeter is if the lion and the man were running in slow-motion through a meadow and met each other half way to hug.....that or the lion eats him.

The second lion looked utterly confused by the whole matter. She approached and let them touch her, but seemed kinda disturbed by the actions of the first.

"if they are raised by humans ... are they wild? if not they are just like your cats"
Not quite true. Lions, never having been domesticated, are going to have stronger natural instincts that might make them hurt you than cats. Our everyday household cats have had this bred out of them over the years. The same with dogs. It`s like, the closer the dog is related to the wolf, the more pack oriented they are. Like Huskys.

Anyway, this was really cute. Obviously, that required a lot of trust. They must`ve really made an impression on her. I mean, I`m sure it`s fairly easy to have a lion that will be similar to a hous cat, though you still have to be a little careful... but a few years in the wild can definately change that. Obviously not with this one. :]

Perfectly real I would think. I have a husky/lab mix that is huge, she can easily put her paws on my shoulders. That dog is not only great, but she does the same thing when I get home. Nearly knocks me over half the time.

My cats would do it too if they were really big. I have one that will jump from anything high enough to my shirt and then puts it`s paws around my kneck and rubs against my face...crazy cat.

Chuck Norris was hired by the guys to be there just in case the reunion turned sour.

Thankfully, his services were not needed.

Nevertheless, he received payment in full.

Sometimes, just being there is enough.

He`s good... damn good... and you know it.

that was cute,but its not good for a wild animal to be so friendly with humans,hopfully its just with those guys,they don`t want to go up and hug someone that thought it was attacking them and has a gun,it makes me sad just thinking about it.Then it could have been staged.*shrugs*I don`t know.

hmm im thinking that cat was maybe trained to do that, because lions don`t usually run up and hug other lions, do they? That means it might have been staged.

My series of thoughts:
1. Hmmm, it would be kind of funny if the lions just mauled the guys since it is a wild animal after all...
2. Nah, that wouldn`t happen.
3. OH GOD! IT IS HAPPENING!
4. Oh, no... it`s not.
5. That`s cute.
