Incredible Footage Shows Lion Reuniting With First Adoptive Dad And Pinning Him To The Floor

January 31, 2017

If you’re an animal lover, you’re going to love this video.

As we all know, there are some people lucky enough to live their day-to-day lives with the wild animals we only dream of seeing up close, with danger hopefully not involved of course.

There are caretakers, zoo keepers, veterinarians, and many others who get to embrace their passion and love for animals every day. Adolfo is one of those compassionate, and lucky people.

In this stunning footage, you get to see the beautiful lion Kiara reunite with Adolfo, who happens to be her first adoptive father.

As the door opens and Kiara comes out, Adolfo braces himself. You might be nervous if you were Adolfo, but he seems to know that she was charging at him with a hug, rather than claws.

This video of them snuggling back up to each other again is absolutely breathtaking. And thanks to The Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation, we get to see it all unfold on tape.

Could you imagine having a relationship like this with such an exotic animal? I love my dogs enough, but this experience would be priceless.

I’d have to say, after watching this footage, a lion hug looks more fulfilling than the bear hug we all commonly refer to.
