Default Christian The Lion (A True Story)

In 1969, John Rendall & Ace Berg saw a lion cub for sale in Harrods.

Cramped & lonely in a small cage, they decided to bring it home.

A local vicar allowed them to exercise the cub, now named Christian,
in the church grounds but he very quickly became too big for their

The only thing they could do was to try and reintroduce him to Africa,
which they managed to do.

A year later they wanted to visit him but were told that he was now
the head of his own pride and as such was completely wild and would
not remember them.

Undaunted, they went anyway.

After many hours of looking for the pride, this is what happened when
they finally found the WILD LION . . .
