Christian The Lion video on The View. So these two people raised this lion cub who they named Christian, and sadly he got too big for them to take care of so they decided to release him to the wild in Africa. Well, a year has passed and they were told that the lion wont recognize them after being in the wild for so long.They go and visit him and as a miracle, he remembers them. Watch closely and you can see the look of pure disbelief that dawns on his muzzle. Next thing you know, we have a heart warming reunion. Not long after, members of Christians pride approach and even they seem to accept Christians human friends.
