Real Life Lion King

A wildlife photographer captures an unbelievable scenario leaving a Lioness in a rather familiar situation.  Remember the scene from Lion King that left every child or adult in tears? Well below takes place in Kenya at Masai Mara a game ranch. 

A helpless looking Lioness, after her cub slipped down a ravine and struggled to catch his footing to make it back up to mom.

Others come to the rescue but they too realize its too steep for their liking.

So mom goes for it, risking it all for her youngster,

Safe in the jaws of mom, the cub is reunited, now the dramatic climb.

Ending with tears and licks of joy! unlike the Disney story we all know so well. Thank goodness Scar wasn't involved in this one.
