In this video, Sirga the rescued lioness plays with her two human friends, Valentin Gruener and Mikkel Legarth, founders of Modisa Wildlife Project, in Botswana, Southern Africa. The bond they share is amazing to watch.
Gruener and Legarth found Sirga abandoned as a cub and decided to hand-rear her.
As you can see, Sirga likes to play and have a cuddle with her two friends.
“I do not believe she will ever turn on me and I have never been worried,” Gruener told Express. “We trust each other completely and if I tell her to back off she listens.”
Legarth explained they didn’t want Sirga to become like other lions in captivity that are continually fed by a stream of tourists.
“She hunts her own food, taking antelopes, and she will let us be near her when she eats it, which is remarkable,” said Legarth.
