Jim is a 92 year old decorated World War II veteran that saw battle on three different occasions. Aside form being a hero, he is also a huge animal lover.
Jim was an early supporter of dog therapy for vets, joining the Saint John Ambulance Therapy Dog Movement over 50 years ago. So when he requested that his life long dream of meeting a lion be fulfilled, a zoo jumped at the chance.
What was so incredible was how the lions, both adults and cubs alike reacted to the elderly man. They loved him! The grown female even game him a big hug and kiss before curling up at his feet as if to protect him.
