Christian the Lion and People

In case you forgot, people are animals too. And everyone knows this particular story. Two Aussies buy a lion cub from Harrods department store in London. The creature is sent back into the wild, his former owners track it down, and — as captured on film — a very dangerous looking Christian runs toward the pair (is he going to eat them?) before leaping ... and nuzzling them cutely. When footage of the reunion, which took place in the early '70s, hit the Web in the early aughts, it became an instant viral hit.
