Kevin Richardson of the Lion Whisperer posted a really wonderful video compilation that showed how an affectionate group of lions, many of whom he’s known for over 20 years, greeted him upon his arrival at the sanctuary where they live. Richardson noted that sometimes these big cats aren’t aware of their own strength, especially when they’re sharing the love.
