This kind of made me tear up...

Apparently a couple of guys reared this lion cub, and released it back into the wild somewhere in Africa - and came back a year later to see if he was doing okay.

Here's the reunion - the quality is kind of fuzzy but watch the expression on that lion's face as he slowly realises just who these humans are.

And then there's the other lion - no mention made of two, so presumably a wild-born pal of the human-reared one, who comes along for the fun and allows the humans to fuss with it without taking anybody's arm off at the shoulder...

Hallelujah!

Okay, ever since I happened to click on a fateful URL here in LJ land, I've been completely obsessed with this song. I cannot believe I had never heard "Hallelujah" before; the version I had been pointed to was luminous, by kd lang, but then I went looking and found something close to the original and I've been humming this for TWO DAYS now and I can't get rid of it from the back of my brain where it swirls in beautiful hypnotic melody and haunting lyrics (that last stanza gives me goosebumps, and story ideas...)


I completely blame marykaykare for this.

ETA Here's another luminous version.
