UPDATE: You asked for it, and we delivered. Today Meredith caught up with Christian's former owners, John Rendall and Ace Bourke, over 30 years after the reunion video was filmed. Check out the story and video, as well as photos of Christian in London and Africa.
And apparently, it happened to a couple of British men in the 1970s. The difference with their experience, though, is that a year after bringing the lion back to Africa, they returned to see if they could find their feline friend (known as Christian).
Against all odds, they were reunited (in slow motion) with Christian, and the video -- set to Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" has become a viral video sensation. And apparently, it's not a hoax. Want more? Read the FULL STORY or see the VIDEO.
We had to cut away before the last lines of the video, but this is what they say:
"Love knows no limits and true friendships last a lifetime. Get back in touch with someone today. You'll be glad you did."
