The lions came running towards a gate when they spotted the woman who had helped them when they were tiny. They can be seen leaping, standing on their hind legs and putting their front paws around her neck as if giving her a great big hug. She hugs them back as the large animals act like domestic pets and try to rub themselves all over her before licking her face.
The lions open their paws out and give the woman a really big hug – one lion is captured closing its eyes to enjoy the moment. The woman almost in tears fully embraces them as they lick her face and play with her hair. She couldn’t look after them anymore when they outgrew her.
