It's Okay to Cry

Last night, a good friend sent me a version of this heartwarming video. It's from 1970 and shows the reunion of two people and the baby lion cub that they raised for a while and ultimately had to return to the wild.

Get your Kleenex ready. Seriously. You don't need the sound on to appreciate it.



I tried to find out more about it and discovered there is a whole documentary about this event. You can get the DVD at Born Free.org.uk.

I had never seen the beginning part, when he was still a (large) cub with them ...

Since we have have three (big) dogs, two cats, and a lot of other pets, I love this. Yeah, I'm bawling a little now. Thanks a lot.
