By now, pretty much everyone in America has seen the YouTube video starring Christian the Lion, a lion cub bought in London by friends John Rendell and Ace Bourke in the 1960s, relocated to Kenya soon afterwards, and then reunited with Rendell and Bourke a little over a year later. The Today show's producers tracked down the two men, who told host Meredith Vieria that owning a lion cub "almost seemed natural" so many decades ago. She responded by comparing the two — live via satellite from Sydney, Australia — to simple foodstuffs. Clip above.
