In 1969 two men, Anthony and John, bought a boisterous lion cub from Harrods in London, and the three of them lived together as flatmates. Christian became a local celebrity but he grew to big to keep, so after a chance meeting Christian was flown to Kenya and placed under expert care. Anthony and John returned to see Christian one year later and their incredible reunion can be seen on YouTube.
A very cool story.
