Watched it, it was brilliant. He was so playful as a cub and so loving, the only complaint I had with the program was……….it wasn’t long enough, it kept my attention all the way through.
You could see the very strong bond the lion and the young men had, the whole concept of taking a fifth generation captive bred lion and releasing it in the wild seems totally crazy but they all made it work……. incredible.March 25, 2009 at 10:21 am #99329.dodger.Member
was incredible to watch! The reunion was beautiful, have seen it many times before but still made me cry :-* Was very sad to watch and follow the other males story too :'( Great program although i was shocked to learn that only 40 years ago people could buy an elephant to keep as a pet 😮 thought that was stopped a long time ago…..March 25, 2009 at 11:29 am #99330kizkiznobiteMember
the best bit for me was when boy cuffed him…no teeth no claws…just you will do what i say lado…
i remember going to harrods and seeing the animals on sale…the problem was the culture of the time…the well off so called hippy set…it was street cred stuff…and harrods did the if we dont have we can get as their advertising…so the ‘set’ constantly tried to get the upper with each other and proving harrrods right…it was a sort of social ‘game’…
at least the guys kicked in their responsibilityMarch 25, 2009 at 3:28 pm #99331
re: the 5th gen captive-bred …
i didnt watch program as i was busy, but i am guessing this flags up the relative slow rate which genetic material creating drives/instincts changes – is this one reason why relatively more recent domesticated dogs lack some of the more captively appropriate subtleties of communication ?
just thinking aloud …?
