Christian the Lion – London in the 60’s, Kenya afterwards June 13, 2008

Posted by Al in : interesting,people , trackback

This is a really nice story about a lion cub who was a star in London in the ’60’s, and then went on to live a real Lion lifestyle in Kenya afterwards. Christian the Lion was bought, as a cub, by the owners of a posh furniture shop in London in 1969. After spending a year being spoiled rotten in a Chelsea townhouse, the time came for Christian to head out into the wild – Kenya, in fact. At first this didn’t seem likely, but with the help of George Adamson this was finally achieve, and Christian live out his days as a real lion in Kenya. This is quite a touching story, and it would be nice to hear of more success stories like this.
