Lioness bonds with rescuers
BOTSWANA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) The photos may be heartwarming, and a little frightening.
The picture above is Sirga the lioness from Botswana.
When she was just a cub, two other baby lions in her pride were killed and she was abandoned without food.
But two conservationists working nearby saved her.
The men found her a shelter where she can still hunt.
The two became so close to Sirga that she hugs them and even lets them near her when she eats.
They say eventually they'd like to release her back into the wild.
