The Lion Who Lived in a London Apartment.

Christian the lion on a TV


In 1969, Ace Berg and John Rendall bought Christian the lion cub from the Exotic Animals department of London's Harrods for 250 pounds. For one year, "He travelled by Bentley, ate in fine London restaurants and spent his days lounging in a furniture shop." The original owners have now written a book about their experience, but the Daily Mail has a great article on the lion that's quite touching. Link

Ha ha I love this! If I found a lion in any of the serviced apartments london has, I would be pretty shocked to say the least. Although I love to watch the lion man on TV im not sure I would want that close proximity. Nice pic!

Another book, or a new release of an older book? Because I read a book about this very same lion, years ago (I think it was a Finnish translation, too).

Another lion related story. That's Gareth Patterson's Biography. He is known as the Lion man of Africa. A pal of the legendary George Adamson [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Adamson] who first held that title.
