YouTube Video of the Week - Christian the Lion

I am selling out big time this week. My Three-Legged Bear post is still bringing in heavy traffic from all over the globe as well as scorn from anti-hunters. Don't judge me! People love this sappy stuff.

I chose this particular video for a few reasons beyond commercialism. One, this could be the first time something positive has been referenced in a hunting/outdoors blog that came from The View. Besides Elisabeth Hasselbeck. I like trying new things.

Two, Carolyn and every other woman who's watched this clip has absolutely balled. Guy or girl, it'll tug on your heart strings. Not mine, though.

Three, after the tragic February 24th orca attack a few miles to my east, I wanted to keep a torch lit for those of you out there who believe interacting with large, aggressive predators is a sane idea. (It may be too soon for that joke.)

So, without further ado, here's Barbara Walters. Get your hankies.

What a story? Unbelievable! After reading this story I started searching in the web for more on “Christian the Lion” and was lucky enough to watch many video clips on Youtube about this heartwarming story. I even found a online store dedicated to Christian the Lion (http://astore.amazon.com/christlion-20) and managed to purchase online a hardcover book on the story, the video and a superb framed poster on Christian the Lion. (The Framed Picture is a centerpiece in my study now!). Thanks once again for the story!
