Seven Years After Rescuing Two Lion Cubs A Man Returns To Confront Them

Nothing compares to the relationship you share with your animal, especially if you helped raise it.
Kevin Richardson is one of those people who devotes their entire lives to protecting animals just out of love.

He saw a mother lion reject two of her newborn pups while working at the Lion Park in South Africa.

Some would have been afraid to approach the couple, but Kevin’s instincts told him differently, says Joe Kahlo of He opted to save them, and they quickly became an important part of his life.

The objective of the center was to nurture these cubs in such a way that they would be able to mature into fully functioning adults without the need for human intervention.

Kevin decided to pay a visit to Meg and Ammy after seven years, and he was naturally worried about their reaction.

They hadn’t seen one other in a long time, and he wasn’t sure if they would recognize him.

Kevin approached the lions without trepidation, and luckily for us, he captured the event on his GoPro camera.

One of the lions chose to approach her while standing near the river and shouting her name.

What occurred next was remarkable; as soon as she understood who Kevin was, she dove right into the water and hugged him tightly.
