Christian the Lion

YouTube – Christian the Lion – the full story (in HQ)

I hope life treats you kind and
I hope you have all you dreamed of
And I wish you joy and happiness but above all of this

I wish you love and I will always love you
Will always love you I will always love you

After the video Christian was never seen again.

Christian left the Kora Reserve in 1973. He made his new territory along the Tana river, but when the Wakamba herdsmen kept bringing their livestock to his hunting ground, he moved on. George Adamson said in his autobiography, “I used to count the days on which we hadn’t seen Christian, but when they reached 97, I gave up recording them in my diary.” Because a lion can live from 12 to 15 years in the wild, Adamson believed that Christian ended his days in the Meru National Reserve only a few miles up river.

As for the two guys, the Born Free Foundation tells me that Anthony “Ace” Bourke (referred to as Ace “Berg” on YouTube) lives in Australia as a lecturer and expert in the area of Aboriginal Art, and John Rendall lives in the UK and is a Trustee of the George Adamson Wildlife Preservation Trust.
