Kevin Richardson was working in the Lion Park in South Africa when one day he witnessed a mother lion reject two of her newborn cubs. It could be frightening to approach the cubs when you knew their mother was near but this was not about Kevin. His heart was devastated and he wanted to help the little ones. He hugged them and the lions believed that he wouldn’t let them be abandoned again.
The kind-hearted man took them and brought them to the wildlife park where they had the opportunity to flourish.
Kevin knew that he gave the little cubs to safer hands and there they would be protected. There the cubs would raise into adult lions who could continue their life in the wild without human assistance.
Later on, Kevin didn’t have an opportunity to visit them, and only 7 years ago he managed to visit the cubs that he had saved before. They were named Meg and Ammy. Kevin was very nervous and thought that the lions couldn’t remember him. When he arrived the liona was swimming and Kevin entered the water too.
“When I call Meg and she comes swimming and I see in her face, ‘If I come to you are you going to catch me?’.”
So after so many years the lions still remember their savior. Kevin told that they had a special bond as they felt that due to the kind man they survived and had a better and wonderful life.
Kevin, also known as the ‘lion whisper,’ also founded the “Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary,” which is a 3,000 lion shelter in Africa. He shelters 26 lions, many like Meg and Amy, who he had known from cubs.
