A 92-year-old war hero just had his lion cub dreams come true

92-year-old Jim is a hero in more ways than one. Not only is he a war veteran who was wounded in battle three times, but this animal lover started the Saint John Ambulance Therapy Dog Movement 50 years ago.

But even though Jim loved animals all his life, he had never visited a zoo before. When the staff at the Bowmanville Zoo in Ontario heard this, they organised for Jim to have a hands-on experience with some of their furry friends.

This video shows the moment Jim met a friendly lion, and an adorable lion cub (that I’m sure he wanted to take home with him — that face!).
