Of a Man and His Lion...

Frikkie Von Solms isn't your ordinary pet owner. His "pet" and best friend happens to be a 560lb (254kg) lion named Zion. The native South African has spent the past 11 years raising Zion, after rescuing him from captivity as a cub. These touching images show their affectionate bond with one another. There is also a bonus video at the end that you won't want to miss.
