Overexcited Lion Jumps Into Man's Arms

Jan 27, 2015
Lions are known as the "king of the jungle," and are feared by most. Lion cubs, on the other hand, are a completely different story. No one can resist a friendly lion cub coming out to play.

Valentin Gruener, co-founder of the Modisa Wildlife Project in Botswana, made some very close friends at this preserve. One special lioness, who Gruener helped raise, was tremendously excited when she was released from her enclosure and went on to give Gruener a giant "bear" hug.
