Wild animals are dangerous to interact with. However, lions are affectionate towards those people who love them.
If a person adopts a lion since its childhood, the animal will almost never harm its owner. Yes, lions are wild animals but when they live in the surroundings of humans, they listen to them and enjoy their companionship.
Yet, it’s hardly believable to accept that lions can enjoy cuddles, belly rubs and his from their owners. You may think that this can happen only in Disney cartoons.
In fact, this story once again proves that there is a mutual love between wild animals and those humans who take care of them.
Sirga was a newborn lion cub abandoned in a farm with her two siblings. Their parents just left them there and walked away. A conservationist and co-founder of Modisa Wildlife Project named Valentin Gruener noticed the cubs and approached them.
It turned out that the two of them were not alive but the third tiny girl was still breathing.
He immediately took her to the vets. The baby girl was only weighing 4lb but Valentin didn’t give up on her.
He adopted the lion cub and feed her delicious and healthy food. It was made of fresh eggs, cream, milk, calcium, sunflower oil, and vitamins. The tiny lion cub loved her food.
Thanks to Valentin’s special care the lion weighed 175lb in the first year. Now the teenage lion eats raw meat.
The man says that she is the most spoiled lion in Botswana.
It’s time for Sirga to live in wild. That’s why Valentin trains her how to hunt and survive with other predators.
He thinks that keeping wild animals in enclosures is a horrible thing to do. The man doesn’t let people to surround Signa so that she won’t adapt to their presence.
Valentin is a very kind man that does everything for the beautiful lion Signa!
