Throwing the lions at Christian

24/08/2014


Now I’m one of those people who will annoy many, please others and just bring bemused puzzlement to others. You see, I don’t buy the accepted wisdom that humans are the only animals capable of emotions.   We may argue where the boundary of higher emotional capability lies  and I’m not suggesting a hamster is capable of jealousy and revenge – but then I wouldn’t rule it out either.

This documentary was recently shown on Channel 4 and reminded me both how much has changed in terms of our relationship to animals. In this instance, Christian was purchased at Harrods in the last 60’s when buying a lion was entirely possible.

Occasionally a story is so touching, refreshing and challenging that it just merits being circulated and praised. An amazing story well worth watching.
