Whatever happened to Christian the Lion after the reunion? John and Ace Australian Interview (video)
I blogged about the recent Interview with John Rendall and Ace Bourke that the today show did. And in that interview, they answer the question, Whatever happened to Christian the Lion after the reunion?
The last time John saw him was during a trip to Kenya in 1974, three years after the reunion video. Christian was double the size, at least 500 lbs and looking very healthy. Christian recognized John then too! He was with wild lionesses and had litters of cubs. He had completely integrated into the wild. They never saw him again. And to the best of anyone's knowledge he went forth into that enormous conservation area and lived out his days with his pride.
There is a lovely video of the interview with Ace and John by Kerri-Anne Kennerley. They talk about their experiences when he was a cub. He was such a kind, gentle and intelligent lion. There are more pictures and videos and the pair reminisce about their relationship with Christian.
In part 2 John and Ace talk about Boy the lion who helped Christian rehabilitate and the days after the reunion video. They recount tales of Christian stalking a fully grown Rhino. A lovely interview, Ace and John are very eloquent and they truly loved their little lion. Please consider helping out the cause by donating to the George Adamson Wildlife Fund to continue their great efforts of conserving wildlife in Africa.
