After you've seen it, you can read what snopes has to say (also interesting):

3. Since you posted that in the Lounge, I haven't been able to stop replaying it.
Wild animals belong in the wild, but when they make a human connection that way, it's impossible to deny how it warms the heart. I think we see our better selves in behavior like that.

4. I was all set
to see the lion slurp those two guys up like a fast-food lunch.

Boy, if that isn't the best thing I've seen in a long, long time.

Thank you so much.
