Watch The Sweet Moment A Lioness Hugs The Man When She Recognizes The Man Who Rescued Her
This is the beautiful moment, a rescued lion hugs the man she owes her life to. Though they grow up as the most fearless beast in the animal kingdom, lions are nothing but gentle giants and these photos is the perfect example of how sensitive these majestic creatures are.
A huge lioness behind a wire fence paced back and forth as an unfazed man worked to open the gate. The gate opened and pounce went the lioness. She didn’t ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋ him. Instead she gave him a loving embrace. she weight 110-pound.
Valentin Guener and Sirga share this sort of special friendship since the lioness was just a tiny cub. The now 3-year-old female, was only a few weeks old when the kind man adopted her and saved her life. Due to some unfortunate events, Sirga’s siblings disappeared and from then on her mom suddenly stopped to provide her the so precious milk. On the brick of starvation, the tiny lioness was saved by a group of people who brought her at the Modisa Wildlife Project in Botswana.
Once she got there, things immediately turned in her favor. Maybe because she received some caring and compassionate people, including Valentin – the fonder of the rescue center – who even slept next to Sirga under the star until she was strong enough to handle herself (when she was about eight-month-old).
A couple of years after, during a visit there, Valentin wanted to see if Sirga would remember him. Dr. John Hawkins, who was also there, captured the moment on camera and it was so beautiful.
The basic message from it: Treat animals with respect and do nit ᴛʜʀᴇᴀᴛᴇɴ them and they will do the same to you. Be aware but not afraid from predators. Under such circumstances the risk of being ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋed is hundred times less than being ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋed by a bee or dogs or cow.
