If you had a dangerous job working with dangerous wild animals, would you still take your kids to work? This veterinarian mom in 1959 definitely said yes. This makes sense since her kid would totally be jealous if he knew she was hanging out with a lion cub and he wasn’t there too.

They took this lion cub in as their pet and raised it for two years. We imagine that at that point the little guy would be getting too big to be kept in the house. He had to move out and find actor work on the Lion King.
