Unusual Friendships Between Animals and Humans

Volunteers - unusual friendships between animals and humans

This morning I came across this video, showing unusual friendships between animals and humans. The video is in German, but the pictures speak for themselves. There is a woman, who rescued a lion from a circus, bought him free and embraces him on the video. Another story shows photos of two deers who made friends with the people of a village in Eastern Germany, peacefully walking through the streets, and even queuing up in front of the baker’s shop to get a bread in the morning. The unbelievable story of the “Spaghetti Tiger” who was fed spaghettis, when he was an orphaned baby, and continues on a vegetarian diet up to today.

The title of the video says “God did not create predators” and probably for some of us the religious and philosophical indications of the film go a bit far. I think, we should just open up our minds, that there is more mystery and beauty in nature as we usually presume, and make our own experiences.

Somehow, the pictures of the film coincide with the photos of aminal conservation volunteers in South Africa, showing love, even intimacy with the animals, monkeys, and big cats. It is an example how far love can reach out, and how grateful these animals are, starting to behave in a loving way, too.

What do you think? Would you like to share something of your personal experience, or philosophical thoughts?

Find here some examples, where our volunteers made friends:
