I love video’s like this! If you don’t know the story, and you watch this video, you may wonder, “Hmm, that guy is going to open the gate, the lion is going to come charging out, and the guy will be lunch for the lion.” Well, that’s actually not even close.
Valentin Gruener is a wildlife conservationist, and he raised Sirga the lion pretty much since birth. Sirga just really loves giving Valentin big, lion hugs! Awww. <3
