There is no doubt in my mind that lions are some of the most majestic creatures on the planet. With that being said, most people admire them from afar because, let's face it, lions can be quite ferocious at times. Zion, the lion, however, is one of the most gentle giants you will ever meet and that is thanks to a man named Frikkie.
Zion was raised by Frikkie from a very young age. Born in captivity, Zion was removed from his parents' care because the trainers were afraid that the cub's father would commit infanticide. Zion was placed in the care of Frikkie, who fed the lion by hand every single day. From that time on, the two have been virtually inseparable.
When people see Frikkie walking with Zion, they tend to think that the trainer might be in danger. It takes only a few moments of observation, however, for people to realize that Zion and Frikkie are like father and son. Frikkie and Zion's days together normally end with many giant hugs and kisses. The one-of-a-kind relationship between man and lion leaves people speechless on a daily basis. See for yourself in the video, below!
