Yes, it’s another story of a man and his lion. Frikkie Von Solm, local resident in the great continent of Africa, rescued a lion when it was just a cub. He had raised other large felines before, but he took a special liking to the newly christened Zion. They’re inseparable and as far as I can tell, completely safe. I gotta say … I want my own pet lion if everyone else is getting one!
Frikkie Von Solms seen here.
A gentle giant.
He has raised nineteen other tigers and lions as well.
Zion has never attacked anyone.

They even share a bed!
Interestingly, he walks barefoot because Zion hates the sound of shoes.
