This is a story - TRUE, awe-inspiring story -- of a lioness who refused to eat meat and wanted only vegetarian food, despite the fact that her species was 'naturally' a carnivore!! She also cared for other animals, and took them under her 'paw' so to speak, including lambs, etc.
This naturally carnivorous animal, named Tyke, puts human omnis to utter shame. If I wasnt vegan yet, this story would inspire me to go vegan.
And, to the Christians on the board, recall the passage in Bible about the lion lying down with the lamb in a peaceable kingdom? I was shocked when I read this true story because it was like that Biblical vision coming true! And there is even a picture of the Lion lying down with the lamb, just like in the Biblical vision
if Tyke can do it, surely humans can.
I havent read anything that has warmed my heart like this in a long, long time. Thank-you David for bringing this story to my attention.
I hope you all are moved and humbled by this as much as I was. And enjoy the pictures of this vegetarian Lioness.
Be warned though that Little Tyke passed away of pneumonia. So dont get too attached to him and his amazing, happy story!
