The man who saved two lion cubs seven years ago returns to meet them face to face…Wow

There’s nothing stronger than the bond between you and your pet, especially when you’ve helped raise it. In this case, a man had a great relationship with lion cubs. People dedicate their entire lives to saving animals, just out of love, and that’s what Kevin Richardson.

One day, while working at Lion Park in South Africa, he witnessed the rejection of two newborn lion cubs by their mother. Some people might have been afraid to approach them, but Kevin’s instincts told him otherwise, writes Joe Kahlo of kingdomstv.com.

He decided to save them and they quickly became a very important part of his life.

The center’s goal was to raise these cubs so that they could grow into independent adults without human assistance. Seven years later, Kevin decided to visit these two lions, and was understandably nervous about their reaction.

It had been a long time since they’d seen each other, and he wasn’t sure they remembered him. Kevin decided to approach the lions without hesitation, and luckily for us, he filmed the encounter with a GoPro.

As one of the lions was at the edge of the water, he decided to jump into the water and approach him while calling his name. What happened next was truly amazing. Indeed, as soon as the lion saw Kevin, he then jumped directly into the water and hugged Kevin with his paws.

Kevin describes them as his ” soulmates “ and they’ll always have that special bond, no matter how long they’ve been apart.

Kevin, also known as “lion whisperer”, also founded the “Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary”, which is a refuge for 3,000 lions in the African savannah. He is home to 26 lions of different ages, many of them like these two lions, whom he has known since they were cubs.
